Memory and Beyond

(La memoria y después)
Eduardo Feller | Documentary

2018 | 75 minutes | Argentina

After surviving the Holocaust, Sara emigrated to Argentina where she again survives intolerance and hatred after the disappearance of her son Daniel.

Synopsis

The film weaves the life experiences of Sara Rus, a Holocaust survivor who navigated intolerance and hatred again in Argentina after the disappearance of her son Daniel during the military dictatorship. As an active member of Madres de Plaza de Mayo Línea Fundadora, Sara's resilience and courage shine through, illuminating the themes of dignity, tenderness, love, Jewish identity, and the limits of resistance.

Through Sara's firsthand testimony, viewers are immersed in the profound moments of her history. Her granddaughter Paula, a philosophy student, grapples with the family legacy, continuing the narrative of resilience passed down through generations.

The film offers insights gleaned from discussions with students, encounters with notable figures in the human rights struggle, and first-person interviews. Through Paula's introspections, viewers are prompted to contemplate the significance of preserving memory and the responsibility of passing it on from one generation to the next.
