Description: DOCUMENTARY
English

Beneath a clinical look at how the Nazis transformed Zyklon B gas from pesticide to genocidal weapon lies the immensity of one family's loss. The chilling calm before the genocide stifles the intimacy of a family album. With a collage of instructional archival films, family photographs, home movies, underwater photography, and hand-painted imagery the filmmaker tries to reconcile with the past as she traces three generations of women. The act of making the film gives way to finding shape and form for unspeakable, unshowable memories. <13mn>
