  1. Hi!
    I am Swedish and live in Sydney, Australia. I read the other day in DN about the film “Watching the moon at night”.

    I would very much like to watch the film and my question is:
    Where can I see it ? Can it be screened at the Jewish Film Festival in Sydney?
    I will be in Sweden this summer and can I buy the DVD, if there is one?

    Look forward to hear from you!

    Thank you!
    Best regards
    Eva Rosenbaum

  2. Hi
    When can we see the film on SVT Play, otherwise when will it be released on DVD?
    I teach a class on the topic of terrorism and believe that this film would be very good to show.

    Grateful for answers.
    Regards Julia Bölzner

    • P.S. I just found out that it has been shown on two occasions (wich I missed) at film festivals last year, but nothing else

  3. We are very interested in previewing Watching the Moon At Night for a possible documentary slot in our Fall 2016 Jewish Film Festival. We appreciate screeners via vimeo.

    Read an article about your film in today’s issue of the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. Is there any chance to watch the film in Sweden or on the Internet?

  6. Hi!

    I’m also Swedish and live close to Gothenburg, and I also would like to watch the movie. I’m sad and frustrated to read in DN that although financed by SVT, it won’t air it on Swedish television, nor won’t it be aired in in Swedish schools, nor Swedish cinemas. I wonder if there is any way to by a CD, or if you are going to show it in an event in Gothenburg anytime soon. The trailer looks very good!

    Allt Gott till Er and Best Regards

  7. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and would love to see this film. Does anyone know if any screenings are planned here? Is it available on DVD or streaming?
