Three Minutes - A Lengthening presents a home movie shot by David Kurtz in 1938 in a Jewish town in Poland and tries to postpone its ending. As long as we are watching, history is not over yet. The three minutes of footage, mostly in color, are the only moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk before the Holocaust. The existing three minutes are examined to unravel the human stories hidden in the celluloid. The footage is imaginatively edited to create a film that lasts more than an hour. Different voices enhance the images. Glenn Kurtz, grandson of David Kurtz, provides his knowledge of the footage. Maurice Chandler, who appears in the film as a boy, shares his memories. Actress Helena Bonham Carter narrates the film essay.

Reviews
“THREE MINUTES is fascinating… electrifying… A reminder of what a magical medium film is — how unique it is in its ability to capture so many moments and so much life”
Nicholas Barber
Indiewire
“An original and incisive meditation on history, memory, memorials and the very nature of celluloid…"
Alissa Simon
Variety
A poetic meditation on film, history, and loss… Stigter shows that in the right hands, with the right pair of eyes, three minutes can contain an entire world.
