2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: A Nazi Legacy: What Our Father Did
Philippe Sands, a human rights lawyer, conducts conversations with two men whose fathers were indicted as Nazi war criminals. The two sons have starkly contrasting attitudes towards their fathers; one can’t bring himself to condemn his father while the other despises his father.
The three men travel together cross Europe on a challenging journey. For Sands, it means visiting the place where much of his own Jewish family was destroyed. In an emotional, psychological exploration, three men wrestle with their pasts and conflicting versions of the truth.
Directed by David Evans, United Kingdom, 2015, 92 min. English. Houston Premiere. Documentary.
