As a teenager in wartime Bulgaria, Angel Wagenstein commanded a daredevil Jewish partisan brigade, surviving capture and torture by fascist police. At 94, Wagenstein is still a man of massive charm and ferocious intelligence, a passionate witness to history and an influential voice in the debate on Europe’s rocky post-communist future. Intimate conversations, film excerpts, and rare archive materials inform this visually striking and provocative documentary.
