Berlin Calling (2015) 81 mins (Unclassified 15+)
Directed by Nigel Dick
Berlin Calling is the first film about the Holocaust seen through the eyes of a Clash fan. A punk‐chick from Los Angeles traces her father’s roots back to pre‐war Berlin and confronts her family’s dark past. During this voyage she discovers not only how she and her whole family were affected by Hitler’s Final Solution – but also that her family is larger than anyone dared imagine.
