The documentary Captured by Batya Wolff and Arnoud Holleman shows how photography and film are intertwined with the aftermath of the Holocaust in Batya's family. Her father Max Wolff bought a camera after the war and now stores tens of thousands of captured moments in an enormous image archive. Photography is his coping mechanism in order to deal with his war trauma, but while photographing he also put a brake on the life of his daughter Batya. Can she free herself from a war that ended before her birth?
After this exclusive preview, there will be an opportunity to ask questions to the makers, Batya Wolff and Arnoud Holleman.
Captured has been selected for the JFBB Jüdisches Film Festival Berlin Brandenburg and for the Toronto Jewish Film Festival. The film will be broadcast by KRO-NCRV later in the summer.
