23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
aw • rah • nyoosh
The young filmmaker and his father try to understand the experiences of his grandmother, who survived a concentration camp. Re-enacted scenes from a diary blur the line between witness and conspiracy, and the attempt at a reconstruction of the events opens the question whether, faced with death, anyone can ever remain a hero.
American director Ben Neufeld (1987) works with the clash of documentary film with fiction and its formal conventions. His films often explore the modern history of Jewish culture.
