A new documentary feature about memory, memorialization, and
meaning, now in production. Hungary/USA.
"Memory is not set in stone."
My grandma, a survivor of Auschwitz, was never able to tell us what happened to her during the Holocaust. But at the end of life, she returned to her hometown in Hungary to build a mysterious memorial for the town’s Jewish people, including her family.
MONUMENT is a forthcoming documentary feature about traumatic memory. What's get passed down in the silences– in the absences of people who should still be here? The heavy stones that my grandma laid in the town square of Sárvár– do they still talk?
