ROOM CHANGE! Now showing in 6203 Social Science.
Masel Tov Cocktail, directed by Arkadij Khaet and Michkey Paatzsch is an award-winning short fiction film that provides a thoughtful yet entertaining perspective of Jewish life in Germany. Nineteen-year-old Dimitrij Liebermann punched Tobi in the face. Now he’s supposed to apologize to him. But Dimitrij doesn’t exactly feel sorry. While on his way to meet up with Tobi, he encounters a diverse representation of German society. Again and again, Dimitrij faces one struggle he needs to overcome: his German-Jewish identity.
