In Memory

USA, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Experimental)

Director: Abraham Ravett

Using the only extant footage of the Lodz Ghetto in Poland, the filmmaker pays tribute to members of his own family and others who died as a result of Nazi persecution. An affecting and extraordinary found-footage document, part memorial, part poetic lament, part history lesson, In Memory has an urgency of passion which other holocaust movies like Schindler's List strive to sustain.
