In the Blood


Diane Nerwen

In the Blood is an experimental documentary about Jewish American attitudes towards Germans and the role the Holocaust plays in shaping identity. This layered collage combines appropriated images, original footage, sampled sounds, and fragments of audio conversations to examine perceptions and representations of Germany, cultural identity, collective memory and the nature of forgiveness.
