In the winter of 1945, Primo Levi, one of the century's great writers, was liberated from the Auschwitz concentration camp. With the war still underway, he embarked on a thousand-mile journey to his home in Turin, Italy a strange, beguiling odyssey memorialized in his book, "The Reawakening." Sixty years later, director Davide Ferrario set out to follow in Levi's footsteps. Retracing his historic trip, the film weaves a path through a modern Europe that has both changed and remained eerily the same from democratic rallies in the East to neo-Nazi demonstrations in the West. Narrated by Academy Award® winning actor Chris Cooper, Primo Levi's Journey is a comic, frightening, and picaresque road trip through history.
