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?
