An award winner at several major Jewish film festivals, Aida’s Secrets received a standing ovation at its Hot Docs premiere. In this remarkable mystery, the discovery of records from WWII sparks a family’s quest for answers as two brothers separated as babies reunite with each other and their elderly mother, who hid more from them than just each other. Izak was born in the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. Though Izak was able to form a relationship with his birth mother, his life was turned upside down years later when he located not only his birth certificate, but also another of a brother he never knew existed. What makes it all the more powerful is that his brother Shep lives in Winnipeg and will be here to tell his story. A story with twists and turns you will never expect.
