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.

Co-Presented with Co-presented with Diaspora Film Festival.
