Description:

This autobiographical documentary film explores memory,age and identity through the daughter/filmmaker’s frustrated attempts to bring into the open long-held secrets in her Jewish family. Her elderly parents, Barbara and Bertie, were married in the mid-1940s and divorced in the 1960s at a time when divorce was a stigma and homosexuality illegal - and in the eyes of observant Jews, a sin. They later reunite and spend their last days together in a small flat in North London. The film is a montage of fragments of memories recalled through voiceovers; observational filming of everyday lives; evocative fictional enactments; and Daniels’ direct addresses to the camera.
