Haunted by History

9 March 2019

Still from Across the Land and the Water – The Two Journeys of the Family Basch by Barbara Loftus

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
