Three Minutes: A Lengthening

An essay documentary about the power of memory, how we memorialise and how historical footage can be made anew. Co-produced by Sir Steve McQueen’s London-based Lammas Park - his wife Bianca Stigter directs - this is an impressive feat of focus and analysis. With narration, and emotion, provided by British actress Helena Bonham-Carter, this is not only a lengthening, but a deepening, too.
A three-minute home movie, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, of a Jewish town in Poland is repeated and reframed to discover the stories of the people in the footage and what happened to them.
