Levin Peter’s grandfather now lives in a small room in an old people’s home but in 1943 he was stationed in Ukraine as a soldier of the Wehrmacht. A photo album that Levin finds in his grandfather’s cupboard leads him back to the war. The final photos show silhouettes of people on snow-drifted plains near the eastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol.
These photos became the inspiration for a film that connects long discussions between grandfather and grandson with ghosts of the past.
Filmography: A Promise (2012), Prestes Maia (2008).
