Family Love - My Grandpa, Nazism and Me
An inherited family treasure trove of photos and film footage show the director‘s grandfather in southern Germany in the 1940s. In one clip, the grandfather is briefly seen at a funfair wearing a swastika on his jacket.
How is our perception of a loved one changed through a symbol that stands for murder by the millions? How can photos and film footage, memories and archival material, be pieced together to form a coherent picture?
A struggle for memory – and a search whose persistence ultimately ruffles some feathers in the family.
