Film Screening: We Keep Coming Back
In 2012, Canadian Jewish theatre artist, Michael Rubenfeld, proposed to his mother that they go to Poland together “for the first time” and see the country their family came from, and the places they had survived. This trip was to serve as research for a play they would make together. This “research” would ultimately turn into a much larger project, the outcome being that Michael now lives in Krakow, and became co-founder of an alternative Jewish arts festival.
