Following its World Premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, Our Time in the Garden screened a major film festivals, theaters and museums world wide, including the Cinema du Reel Festival and the Museum of Modern Art.

This moving experimental short uses re-photographed home movies and overlapping soundtracks to relate one woman's true memoir of growing up Jewish in 1930s Berlin. She describes her family's charmed and secure life, at the center of which is a walled garden, leading up to their flight from Germany in the face of Nazism and antisemitism.
