Directed by Bianca Stiger

A short piece of found film becomes a fascinating journey into the past in Bianca Stigter’s haunting and moving documentary. 

Nasielsk is a small village some 30 miles north of Warsaw. In 1938, when the three-minute piece of footage that lies at the heart of this film was shot, it had a population of 7,000. Almost half were Jewish. The film, once a snippet capturing everyday life, has become a record of a world that irrevocably changed. . By the end of the Second World War, only 100 of the village’s Jews had survived. 

Narrated by Helena Bonham Carter, the celluloid itself is interrogated and probed.  This investigative narrative gradually unearths the backgrounds of the multitude of faces seen in the footage, not only lending them context, but also commemorating their existence.  

The screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with director Bianca Stiger.
