spectacular documentary with a very intense experience. how can a particular life relate to us through film? Alan´s relation with his father is beautifully explored along the process, and shows how memory, family and film share common grounds and articulate in our lives. Beautiful.
A gem on the art of portraying a whole era through the poetry of family home movies + intimacy where the other seems reluctant + digging jew russian american archives + a dark sense of humor + interview as graceful conversation + your dad shouting at you to go fuck up yourself every 5 min <3 I tend to say that I don't believe in roots but this genre on family memory is growing on me.
