We Are Going To America

Russia, 1993, 120 min.
Russian w/ subtitles
Director: Efim Gribov
"People don't live in America, they take refuge there," says Shalom-Aleichem, whose story, Boy Motl, was the basis for this film. Director Efim Gribov transforms a clasic immigrant's tale into a magical mystery tour as seen through the eyes of an 11-year old boy. Motl's childlike sense of wonder grows daily as he and his family make their tragic-comic, at times surreal, way from the shtetl to America, loaded down by al their worldly and other-worldly baggage.
