Haunted by History
Birkbeck Cinema, London
A selection of recent essay films – poignant, thought-provoking, sometimes darkly humorous and frequently disturbing – made by UK-based members of the so-called ‘Second Generation’, namely, the children of refugees from Nazi Europe and/or Holocaust survivors, whose work explores the complex and necessarily problematic legacy of their families’ experiences.
The film-makers will be present to participate in a Q&A after each screening and also in a concluding panel discussion. This event is organised in association with the Insiders/Outsiders Festival
