Abstract:

Traces a family's journey as one of only twelve Jewish families to survive the Nazi occupation of Prague during World War II. Marina Willer's exploration of today's refugee crisis, is mirrored in the story of her own family. It is a story that circles between Europe and Latin America; just one example of the cultural and racial richness of a world in which migration is a fact of life. Marina is a designer, film maker and partner at an internationally renowned design agency. She tells the story of her father and her grandfather and how theirs was one of only twelve Jewish families to survive the Nazi occupation of Prague during World War Two. At the war's end, they fled from Czechoslovakia to a new life in Brazil, where her father Alfred Willer grew to become a successful and influential architect. The past is brought vividly to life by the voices of Alfred and narrator Tim Pigott-Smith. In the present day, the camera of Oscar-nominated DOP César Charlone explores the architecture of Prague and the industrial landscape, now in ruins, where Alfred's father worked as a chemical engineer.
