“What things do you remember? What was it like growing up here?” asks Katharina Copony. For twenty-three years, her grandmother ran a canteen in the Styrian location of the Austrian armed forces’ barracks. As a small girl, she grew up in the midst of marching soldiers—like her mother before her, and her mothers’ sisters. Copony dissects her family history in kaleidoscopic slivers and in a wonderfully extraordinary film searches for the deposits between the images: “What kind of world appears in the others’ stories and memories?”
