Directed by | Asher de Bentolila Tlalim

Genre documentary  |  Length: 140mins  |  Year of production: 1994

Tlalim's epic documentary starts with a question asked by an experimental Israeli theatre collective: What do we, the generation after, have to do with the Holocaust? Delving through films, written documentation and interviews in search of truth, the actors find what they call "the mythology of the Holocaust", a story of saints and monsters that looms larger than life. Every bit as serious as the subject it covers, the film is a unique, often surreal exploration of the Holocaust's effect on the children and grandchildren, of both victims and perpetrators, across cultures which choose to remember and which choose to forget.
