George Penner Goes Home to Dolinovka (90 min.)

This homemade film documents a trip from Canada through Germany and Moscow, back to where George was born in the foothills near Orenburg. Viewers get a glimpse of scenes from the Frankfurt airport, the Molotschna colony, and other significant areas of George’s past. From the ice hockey rink in the #11 village, to the dairies and pig barns, there are a multitude of stories that are brought forth through the communities involved. Some conversation is in Low German, with English subtitles. [Richard Penner].
