Heimat Is A Space in Time (Heimat ist ein Raum aus Zeit)(2019)
NAME OF FILM: HEIMAT IS A SPACE IN TIME (HEIMAT IST EIN RAUM AUS ZEIT)
DIRECTOR(S): Thomas Heise
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Stretching from the dawn of World War I to the present day, Thomas Heise’s monumental essay film reflects on the fraught evolution of Germany’s national identity through the prism of one family’s history. The film, shot in monochrome black-and-white, combines a wealth of archival footage and materials––including letters written by Heise’s grandparents during the war––with new footage in which the director traces vestiges of his country’s national trauma to the very sites and landscapes that once played host to unspeakable violence. As he visualizes his ancestors’ forced displacement across East and West Germany, Heise achieves a moving meditation on the relationship between home and heritage.
