I Shot My Love (2010) Trailer
The trailer for I Shot My Love which will make its North American Premiere at the 2010 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Seventy years after his grandfather escaped from Nazi Germany, Israeli filmmaker Tomer Heymann returns to his ancestral home to present a film at the Berlin International Film Festival. It is there that he meets and falls in love with German dancer Andreas Merk, a man who will forever change his life. When Merk decides to move with Heymann to Tel Aviv, he must cope not only with a partner who insists on filming his every move, but also with his relationship to Israel as a German with Nazi ties in his family’s past. Meanwhile, Heymann’s mother battles a crippling illness and watches as four of her five sons leave the country that she and her family helped build. A personal but universal love story, I Shot My Love is an intimate portrait of two lovers confronting the challenges posed by their families, their national histories, and their own emotions.
