Divided into three cinematic stanzas and spanning a trio of disparate locales, this hauntingly beautiful documentary from Israeli filmmaker Michale Boganim moves from the storied Ukrainian city of Odessa to Brooklyn's "Little Odessa" neighborhood and then on to Ashdod, Israel. This, however, is no ordinary travelogue. Using the symbolic figure of a weary traveler carrying a battered valise as linking device, the film is instead a psychic map of the Jewish Diaspora. (English, Russian, Yiddish and Hebrew, with English subtitles).
