FilmBites talk: Journey to Poland: Documentary Landscapes of the Holocaust

Dr Maurizio Cinquegrani, Senior Lecturer in Film, addresses crucial issues of memory and history in relation to the Holocaust as it unfolded in the territories of the Second Polish Republic.

Aiming to understand the ways past events inform present-day landscapes, and the way in which we engage with memory, witnessing and representation, Dr Cinquegrani talks about creating a coherent cinematic map of this landscape through the study of previously neglected film and TV documentaries that focus on survivors and bystanders, as well as on members of the post-war generation.

Applying a spatial and geographical approach to a debate previously organised around other frameworks of analysis, Journey to Poland uncovers vital new perspectives on the Holocaust.

FilmBites talks showcase academic research and book publications by film lecturers at the University of Kent.
