Back to Berlin

Back to Berlin

An Olympic flame of hope burning defiantly as a symbolic gesture of reclaiming the past. A feature documentary amalgamating the cinematic tradition of biker film with historical memory and athletics. The movie follows eleven modern day motor bikers who embarked in the summer of 2015 on a mission to carry the Maccabiah torch from Tel Aviv to Berlin’s infamous Olympic Stadium, where the European Maccabi Games are held. This gripping motorcycle journey spans more than 4,500 km, blending historical events with personal revelations in a sobering remembrance of a time gone by, yet fearful still, as anti-Semitism is once again on the rise.
