We Are Here (aka I Miss You Jew) is about the impact of war on a country, a people, a community and ultimately a family.
These are the stories of five Jews who are all trying to build a life in Poland after the downfall of Communism. Can we progress from a country containing the unmarked graves of three million, to one which now celebrates life? These five people and their families struggle to find their place as Jews in the new Poland.
From the lens of veteran filmmaker Francine Zuckerman, whose own father fled Poland in 1939 for Canada, this groundbreaking new film will excavate the fragile, shaky rebirth of Polish Jewish life in the shadow of the Holocaust. A poignant cinematic look at the attempt to revive Jewish life in Poland since the Holocaust, We Are Here (aka I Miss You Jew) details the conflicts of constructing a new Polish-Jewish identity for its subjects and the filmmaker as well as the response by the Poles today to the one thousand year history of the Jewish presence in Poland, on the very soil which bore witness to the most horrific atrocities of the 20th Century.
