Directed by Gastón Solnicki
Argentina, 2011

A portrait of Argentine director Gastón Solnicki’s family over the course of the second half of the 20th century, “Papirosen” follows four generations still troubled by a war that’s never spoken of.

Our take

An inquiry into the pervasive memory of World War II and its many effects on Jewish identity, Papirosen finds the uniquely talented Gastón Solnicki avoiding the usual faults of self-portraits. The result is a graceful consideration of post-war Jewish identity and the collective memory of a family.
