No Man's Land: Difficult Dialogue (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: No Man's Land: Difficult Dialogue
Writer: Daniel Fernandez
Director: Daniel Fernandez
Producer: Nela Navarro
Abstract: This dialogue explored the ways that trauma is transmitted and remembered across generations and focused on the relationship of perpetrators and victims of genocide. It brought together the daughter of a member of the French resistance, who later died in the Neuengamme Concentration Camp in 1945, and the son of a member of the “Ordnungspolizei,” the uniformed police force in Nazi Germany, in a constructive, open-ended dialogue. The session also included a screening and discussion of a brief documentary film, Amnesia, which explores the ways in which empathy and the arts can help people come to terms with the trauma of war.
