About 80 years after the Holocaust began, Berlin is now home to the fastest growing Jewish community in Europe. The new documentary "Germans and Jews" shows how people living in Berlin deal with Germany’s history. 

 

It premieres at the Greenwich International Film Festival on Thursday, and filmmakers will be there to share how their unique friendship inspired the documentary.

Hard to believe, but it's been 20 years since we first joined Tomb Raider Lara Croft on her adventures, tracking down mysterious relics in some of the world's most exotic locations. As part of this year's anniversary celebrations, Nathan McCree is in the process of writing an orchestral "Tomb Raider Suite'" drawn from his soundtracks for the first three Tomb Raider games.

In February, Fifth House Ensemble wrapped up their incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign to create a concert version of Austin Wintory's music for Journey, accompanying live players on stage. Now, with several concerts under their belts and an upcoming performance in Brooklyn in July, I checked in with Melissa and Eric Snoza of Fifth House to find out how the performances have gone so far.
