synopsis
My parents are Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany. They lost their home and property there before fleeing to the United States. They received reparations in 1951. I decide to reject the reparations model, return the reparations to the occupiers of our home in Germany, and get our home back. I travel to Germany. In Germany, I suddenly realize I'm a hypocrite: here I am, complaining about the property taken from my ancestors, when in America I'm living on, and profiting from, the land taken from the Native Americans. And then I have an idea: If Germany owes me for sixty five years of back rent, and I owe the Native Americans for sixty five years of rent, why not let the Native Americans collect directly from Germany and cut out the middleman? Four Native Americans go to Germany to execute the 'assigned claim. '

director
Marc Halberstadt is the Chief Analogist of AAA Analogy Service, who "coordinated" his film "in the absence of a director." He believes the title "Director" of a documentary is a contradiction in terms. Marc lives in Fairfield, IA.
