Author and activist Linda G. Mills will present her award-winning film Auf Wiedersehen, ‘Till We Meet Again, at its Italian Premiere on June 15 at 10:15a.m. at the Odeon Cinema in the center of Florence.

In this compelling and often funny tale of recovery and renewal, Mills is propelled by her family´s life-threatening experience of September 11, 2001 to return to the site of her mother´s flight from Vienna, Austria in 1939. Accompanied by her comically bored ten-year-old son, Ronnie, her highly opinionated and wholly engaging mother Annie and Aunt Rita, she discovers unsettling truths that upend a series of familial and historical myths. 

In rarely filmed archives in the Jewish Community Vienna, a new generation of archivists and historians, some of whom are themselves descendants of Nazis, painstakingly reconstruct the records of the Jewish exodus. In her family´s files, Linda discovers a complicated story of escape, deception, and complicity. Auf Wiedersehen is an unconventional documentary that brings the lessons of history into the present day through the eyes of an irreverent ten year-old-boy. Along the way, the family discovers an astonishing array of collaborators, victims, perpetrators, and unlikely heroes in a startlingly humorous adventure spanning five generations.

The film screening will be followed by a special dialogue with Linda G. Mills and Chelsea Clinton.
