Screening and Talk with the Director Bianca Stigter

The starting point for Three Minutes – A Lengthening is a private 16mm film recording from the year 1938, in which David Kurtz recorded scenes from his ancestral village Nasielsk in Poland. In her film essay, director Bianca Stigter expands these recordings into an hour-long cinematographic meditation on the daily routine and life of 3.000 Jewish villagers, almost all of whom were murdered in Treblinka.

At the same time, Bianca Stigter explores the ability of the medium of film to pause, stretch and capture time. The form that she has chosen to do this is a gripping experimental documentary.

The film has been shown to acclaim at international film festivals and it is now celebrating its German premiere at JMB. After the film screening, Daniel Wildmann will speak with director Bianca Stigter.
