This locally produced documentary makes the case for filmmaking as both emotional therapy and historiographic tool. Codirector Sharon Karp and her two sisters retrace the route their parents took while escaping the Nazis in 1943. Featuring a mix of archival footage from 1940s Europe, firsthand testimony from their mother, voice-over from a memoir by their father, and candid footage of the sisters during their trek, the film is a grab bag of documentary genres: part essay film, part cinema verite, part educational video. The myriad forms make it disorienting, but there are moments of real emotion, as when the sisters put their parents’ stories alongside the historical record in an effort to reconcile the two and build a more accurate narrative for themselves. Silvia Malagrino codirected.
