Play trailer

Bianca Stigter / NL, GB, 2020 / 69 min.

Bianca Stigter did something very special: she made a 70-minute documentary from a three-minute amateur film from 1938, as an homage to the deceased Jewish inhabitants of the town of Nasielsk in Poland. A filmic essay about allowing time to persist by zooming in, slowing down, repeating and pausing.

Nasielsk, 1938. American businessman of Polish-Jewish origin David Kurtz arrives in the town where he was born, with a 16mm camera. Everyone crowds around the lens; seven years later, almost all of the town’s inhabitants have been murdered in the Holocaust.
