CowJews and Indians: How Hitler Scared My Family, and I Woke Up in an Iroquois Longhouse with a Picture of Jesus, Reminding Me, for the Wrong Reason, that I Owe the Mohawks Rent (Germany, USA) 86 minutes- 1006

FEATURE IN COMPETITION

My Jewish family lost its home to the Nazis. I decide to return the reparations to the occupiers of our home in Germany, and I go to Germany to get our home back. In Germany, I suddenly realize I’m a hypocrite: here I am, complaining about the property taken from my ancestors, when in America I’m living on and profiting from the land taken from the Native Americans. And then I have an idea: If Germany owes me for sixty five years of back rent, and I owe the Native Americans for sixty five years of back rent, why not let the Native Americans collect directly from Germany and cut out the middleman? Four Native Americans go to Germany to execute the ‘assigned claim.’  (Language)  9/3 4:40 p.m. – Eccles Black Box Theatre;  9/5 4:30 p.m. – Dunford Auditorium
