Three minutes of home movie footage, mostly in color, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, are the only known moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk, Poland, before the Holocaust. Those precious minutes are examined in intricate detail to unravel the human stories hidden in the celluloid. Tracing the story of those three minutes begins with the journey of Glenn Kurtz to discover more about his grandfather's film, ultimately leading to identifying people and places otherwise erased from history, and helping to connect a Holocaust Survivor with his lost childhood.

Narrated by Academy Award® nominee Helena Bonham Carter

Co-produced by Academy Award® winner Steve McQueen

In theaters starting August 19th, 2022

Reviews
“Unspools like a not-so-minor miracle. It’s a work of poetry, power and ruminative grace.”
Ann Hornaday
The Washington Post
“a snapshot, a memorial, a knotty philosophical detective story and a devastating account of Nazi atrocities. It’s also an extended rumination on the illusory, entropic nature of the cinematic medium itself.”
Justin Chang
The Los Angeles Times
“An original and incisive meditation on history, memory, memorials and the very nature of celluloid…"
