Serves as another critical reminder of one of the world's most horrific periods, even if, cinematically, it's an affecting collection of stories and images in search of an actual center.
Though Maya Angelou is enlisted as the solemn narrator of Hilary Helstein's Holocaust documentary, the survivors here need no help expressing their own tragedies.
Unfortunately, Angelou's detached and often superfluous narration lessens the film's impact.
Art executed under the most excruciating conditions deserves a far more searching study than this too short film, which has the structure of a hurried checklist.
Distractingly tortured metaphors are given a distractingly affected narration by Maya Angelou.
Distinguishes itself from many other Holocaust documentaries and offers a new perspective on this timeless tragedy.
Hilary Helstein offers a historically significant documentary reportage of Holocaust survivors who utilized art as their primary coping mechanism inside Hitler's concentration camps.
Helstein leads the narrative with superfluous voiceovers from poet Maya Angelou that emphasize the historicity of the events described and, in some instances, dote on details that seem irrelevant to the core topic.
A quietly impressive testament to the tenaciousness of the human spirit.
