We Keep Coming Back

March 9, 2018 to March 11, 2018. A mother and son, both descendants of Polish Holocaust survivors, decide to return to Poland in the hopes of finding their lost identity, and using their quest as a way to reconnect with each other. The plot, however, takes an unexpected turn when Michael and Mary discover a vibrant contemporary world of Jewish life in Poland. Unbeknownst to them, their journey will reveal a parallel narrative among Poles seeking a reconnection with lost Jewish identities. A new and unexpected story is born.We Keep Coming Back is performed by real-life mother and son, Mary Berchard and Michael Rubenfeld, as well as Katka Reszke, author of "Return of the Jew". It is presented in a media rich environment, incorporating video footage, archival material, and music. Each performance will be followed by a short talk-back with the audience. Please join us for discussion panels as well.. Event Details. Location: 123 Doncaster Street, Winnipeg
