Eine eiserne Kassette

Documentary Film, AT/DE 2018, 102 min, OmeU

When his grandfather dies, Nils Olger finds in his estate a roll with a total of 377 photos taken during his last war deployment between March 1944 and April 1945. The filmmaker follows the traces of the negatives to the site of their origins. Eine eiserne Kassette is not only the processing of a family biography, but also focuses on the repression of Austrian Nazi history. A film against remaining silent and forgetting—in the past as well as the present.
