Four siblings in search of history set out on a remarkable journey in this eloquent and surprisingly humorous documentary about retracing their father’s steps during the Holocaust. The exclusive Los Angeles engagement begins Friday, October 19 at the Town Center 5 in Encino.
An eloquent, intense and sometimes humorous portrait of documentary filmmaker David Fisher and his siblings as they follow in the footsteps of their late father—a Holocaust survivor who was interned in Gusen, Austria.
After reading the diary of their father, a Hungarian Jew, the three brothers and sister travel from Israel to Austria, and David’s journey also takes him to the United States, where he meets American veterans of WWII who participated in the liberation of Gusen.
Illuminated only by flashlights in the tunnels at Gusen, the four Fisher siblings seek meaning in their personal and family histories; Ultimately, through the craft of Fisher’s storytelling, they become emblematic of the entire second generation who are still grappling with the experience of their survivor parents.
