The 1940s Holocaust might have been one of the lowest points of human existence. These few minutes wonder if we ‘might all hold the capacity to see light in the darkness’. This is a glimpse of the stoic experience of a holocaust survivor.
Might we all have a part to play in the life of another? This film captures the experience of an extraordinary soul. From the holocaust to the delights of the London Underground. Meet Alison. 93. Alive. Very alive.
Start with Nothing. No-thing. No act on your part. For this moment in time set down your requirements. Let the experience of each film subject find you, not you them. Like the experience of music. Witnessing is not an act on your part. Let it. Simply let it.
When we are seen without judgment or condition, we are known. When we are known, we become aware that we belong to each other. It is such an awareness that might change the world. These are essential notes on how best to experience these film portraits.
