Oskar & Jack eine coproduktion von WDR/arle/SWF ; ein film von Frauke Sandig

Publication

Identical twins Oskar and Jack were born in Trinidad in 1933. Shortly after their birth their parents separated. Oskar was taken by his mother to the Sudentenland where he was given a strict Catholic upbringing and became a member of the Hitler youth. Jack remained with his father in the Caribbean and was raised a practicing Jew. They met for the first time in 1954 and, finding themselves on opposite sides of ideological and ethnic divisions, had little to say to each other. The film follows them twenty-five years later when the brothers were reunited as part of a research project.
