The Next Harvest
In the Fall of 2008, a Jew from Gloucester, Massachusetts bought a house in picturesque Oppenheim, Germany. He became the first Jew to live in that city since the director’s mother, Marianne Orkin of Waterbury, CT, fled the Nazis with her brother and parents in 1941. The Next Harvest, filmed on location in this small city on the Rhine will link viewers to the past through the story of the director’s grandfather, Carl Newman, once a respected Oppenheim vintner and last head of its thriving Jewish community. Directed by Glenn Orkin.
