Displaced Films is pleased to announce that 

Sweet Old World, David Zeiger’s Guggenheim Fellowship supported film, 

will be distributed on Video On Demand and DVD July 1 by Passion River Films.

The relationship between Brian and his teenage son Ethan has become cold and strained in the years since Ethan’s brother Michael was killed in an accident, and now they find themselves on the brink of disaster and the potential for a new life when Michael’s best friend returns.


“Solid portrayal of loss and love between father, son…

What the drama has going for it is the unblinking way it conveys familial loss and a renewed love between father and son that holds a ray of promise for their futures. Sweet Old World shows a talented filmmaker thick in the middle of a brave period of transition.”

Howard Pousner, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


“Sweet Old World is a unique and welcome film. Drawing from his own life’s tragedy, David Zeiger has created a story that is in turns heartbreaking and heart healing. He takes viewers deep inside the all-too-often hidden world of families living through the years with the death of a child. An insightful journey of two souls searching for peace. I highly recommend Sweet Old World to those who have taken that unwanted journey, the people who support them, and anyone looking for a unique, satisfying film.”
