The March

USA, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Documentary)

Director: Abraham Ravett

In interviews with her son, Fela Ravett recalls the 1945 'Death March' from Auschwitz. With deconstructive images and editing, the footage spans 13 years. The March reveals more of the process of ageing and the intrusiveness of the documentary filmmaker, than it does of the 'Death March' itself.
