BRUSSELS TRANSIT, one of the first modern films in Yiddish, is a retelling of how the director's parents immigrated but then never adjusted to life in Belgium after the Holocaust. Stunningly photographed, it is a semi-surreal testimony and emotional journey into one family's isolation on foreign soil.
