TREBLINKA (61 min)
Sérgio Tréfaut | Portugal | Exp Doc | U.S.A. Premiere
This hypnotic relating of the past as a train crosses Eastern Europe in the 21st century, Poland, Russia, Ukraine demonstrates a cinematic courage that stiffens one's sinews with fear as well as resolve to never let this happen again. Brilliantly executed with a poetry that extends beneath any conscious subtlety, the camera's continued return to empty carriage seats convinces us that those who are no longer with us should have filled those seats with life, laughter and humanity, yet they are empty but for the two ghosts who bring their death camp horror, once again, to life.
