HOLLYWOOD DISCOVERY AWARD: BEST FEATURE FILM Hollywood Film Festival, 1999

SELECTED SCREENINGS

Vancouver Jewish Film Festival, 2007

A man fighting for justice is faced with a brick wall of prejudice in this political drama from Germany. Michael Rosenzweig (Christoph Gareissen) is a working-class German Jew married to a woman originally from Vietnam (Uyen Van Thi Dao). One day, Michael and his family are attacked by a gang of racist skinheads; Michael flees in the melee that follows, and the gang's leader later turns up dead. Michael is charged with murder in the skinhead's death, and even though he isn't guilty of the crime, Michael's attorney brother (Benjamin Sadler) finds he has his work cut out for him in dealing with the German legal system, dominated by people who traditionally have little sympathy for Jews or Asians. Originally produced for German television, Rosenzweig's Freedom was a prize-winning entry at the 1999 Hollywood Film Festival.
