    • Synopsis
    • "My siblings refused to open my father's memoir after his death. I opened it, uncovering his demons. Some names and issues were familiar - others seemed to be weird or hallucinatory. I tried deciphering them and ended up in the footsteps of the memoir. I made half the journey alone. I forced the second half on my siblings, making them crawl around tunnels and walk enchanted forests. This isn't a film about the holocaust, because we spent most of our time laughing; it's about a father's legacy and a rare kind of intimacy replacing pain with bitter-sweet humor." David Fisher
