See You Soon Again.
A Film by Lukas Stepanik & Bernadette Wegenstein
Leap into Darkness
by Leo Bretholz and Michael Olesker
See You Soon Again is not a Holocaust film. It is a film about how hard it is to tell a story of unspeakable suffering, and how impossible it is not to.
Leo Bretholz has a choice. He can continue to tell his story in the Baltimore schools, as he has over two thousand five hundred times since escaping a train bound for Auschwitz, or he can give in to his Holocaust fatigue. At a prickly ninety years old, his impatience for questioning students and tactless acquaintances grows as does Leo’s anxiety about who will tell the story once he and others are gone. See You Soon Again is inspired by the memoir Leap into Darkness: Seven Years on the Run in Wartime Europe (Randomhouse) by Leo Bretholz and Michael Olesker.
