Breaking Through (Documentary Shorts)

93 min
Shorts Program Australia, Germany, Israel, USA

A series of documentary shorts about extraordinary journeys, unexpected triumphs, and boundaries overcome—whether personal, geographic, or cultural.

These true tales examine Dr Ruth’s origin story; a collective of revolutionary female filmmakers; a reluctant hero of the IDF; a poetic examination of Europe’s shifting borders; and a Torah scroll’s voyage to outer space.

Featured films: The Angel of History, I want to make a film about women, Image of Victory, Ruth: A Little Girl’s Big Journey, and Space Torah.
