Watermarks

.

Watermarks is the story of the champion women swimmers of the legendary Jewish sports club, Hakoah Vienna who were stripped of their medals when they refused to represent Austria in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The women managed to flee the country before the war broke out with the assistance of Hakoah’s functionaries. We meet the women’s swim team as they reunite in their old swimming pool 65 years after they left.

Press

  • “A moving documentary that approaches the Holocaust from a fresh, intimate perspective.”
    New York Times
    Stephen Holden
  • “…Snappy, affecting documentary should grab attention as a forthcoming Kino release in the U.S… Sometimes funny, sometimes wrenching and persistently bittersweet, tale is a fascinating account of strength and solidarity, bolstered by vintage photos, edifying newsreels and winningly frank interviews.”
    Variety
    Lisa Nesselson
  • “I LOVED the film. A fascinating look back in time; a terrible time, but one in which some brave people lived and ultimately survived”
    NBC
    Jeffery Lyons
  • “… A beautiful and humane documentary… using a remarkably rich collection of archival sources and contemporary interviews… their grace and dignity as they disrobe and begin to glide through the pool are enough to make even a reviewer misty.”
    The Nation
    Stuart Klawans
  • Boston Globe
    Wesley Morris
  • LA Times
    Lydia Marcus
  • Yaron Zilberman’s affectionate documentary combines archival footage and stills with interviews to sketch the history of the club and its importance to the Viennese Jewish community… Highly recommended.
