Les États généraux du film documentaire 2015 Fragment of a filmmaker’s work: Marc Karlin For Memory

For Memory
Marc Karlin
1982 - Royaume-Uni - Couleur - 114'

A contemplation on cultural amnesia initiated through members of the British Army Film Unit present at the liberation of Belsen concentration camp. Through the central metaphor of a futuristic city Karlin examines how memory is constructed for its citizens; how heritage (protected) lies within, and memory (in danger of destruction) lies beyond the city walls. A museum space which holds historical archive and six case studies create an open structure to support the film’s question: why, what and how do we remember?
