The Testament “manages to avoid the familiar tropes of Holocaust movies and to provide a surprising viewpoint” (Ha’aretz). Director Amichai Greenberg weaves a tense drama about the ambiguity of truth in the fallout of the Holocaust. Yoel is an international expert in Holocaust research. While undertaking a new research project on a massacre that took place in Austria during the final days of the war, he discovers classified documents which hint that his survivor mother is living under an assumed identity. A mystery about a man who is willing to risk everything to discover the truth.
