The personal, investigative portrait of one’s own father or mother has eventually developed into a subgenre of documentary film. Director Nina Grünfeld has set out to unravel the story behind her father’s family. It becomes, literally speaking, a journey back to childhood, as suspenseful as any detective story, yet intimate and harrowing. For what does one really gain by discovering one’s unknown past?
The trilogy of personal documentaries can also be bought separately: Origin unknown (2005), The Dying Doctor (2008) and Nina’s Children (2015).
