Three Minutes: A Lengthening

The Netherlands/U.K., 72m, DCP

So long as we are watching history, history is not over. Three minutes of footage, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, are the only moving images remaining of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk, Poland before the Holocaust. Three Minutes: A Lengthening explores the human stories hidden within the celluloid. Narrated by Helena Bonham Carter. A NEON release

Official Selection: Venice Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival

A film by Bianca Stigter

‘Three Minutes’ is more than a documentary about the Holocaust — it is an investigative drama, a meditation on the ethics of moving images and a ghost story about people who might be forgotten should we take those images for granted.”
