The Short Long Journey|Kratka dlouha cesta, (2009) is a powerful documentary capturing the journey of Fedor Gal, a respected Czech sociologist, as he follows his father’s fate after his transport from the Terezin ghetto. Born in March of 1945 in Terezin, Gal never met his father because by then, he was moved to the concentration camp in Sachsenhausen. His father was shot dead during a death march in the same year Gal was born, two months before the end of the WWII. Gal reflects on the horrific past, life, death and humanity bringing a parallel to societal malaise that still survives in the present.
82min. With English subtitles.
