THE SOUND OF MEMORY
A group of young professional and non-professional actors and musicians is reconstructing the Auschwitz girls’ orchestra in a theatre project based on the original testimonies of the survivors from Auschwitz-Birkenau. Confronted with the cruelty and despair of the camp 75 years later, young people on stage and some of the last survivors come together in a cinematic dialogue between the past and the future.
