Tremblay-Sher, Myriam (2012) The Promise of Return. [Video] (Unpublished)
This film is a personal documentary recounting the story of survival through World War II of my Jewish Polish grandmother, Olga Sher. It also follows my own journey discovering this complicated past. I traveled to Poland and the Ukraine to retrace my grandmother’s steps before, during, and after the war, and to deepen my own understanding of traumatic history. This documentary is therefore a personal narrative of return as well as a visual exploration of history, seeking to shed light on the meaning of traumatic memory and the passage of time in our contemporary lives.
