Remembrance

This 2003 talking-heads documentary on Luis Frank, a Lithuanian Jew born at the end of the 19th century who lived in Spain (where he supported the Republicans in the civil war), New York, Mexico, and elsewhere, is notable for being more reflective than factual. Director Marcela Arteaga uses interviews, some with Frank's children, to portray the chaos and violence of the last century, with its wars and uprootings and the Holocaust. The water imagery is a bit trite, but the weave of voices and images affectingly conveys the fragility of memory, the inseparability of individual from context, and the impossibility of ever portraying a person fully. In Spanish and Russian with subtitles. 86 min.
