Six Million And One

Six Million And One

Joseph Fisher‘s memoir was discovered only after his death. His children

refused to confront it, except for David, the filmmaker, for whom it became a

compass for a long journey. When he found it unbearable to be alone in the

wake of his father‘s survival story and his struggle not to lose his sanity, David

convinced his brothers and sister to join him in the hope that this would also

contribute to releasing tensions and making them as close as they used to

be. In the dark depths of the tunnels, part of an Austrian concentration camp,

where their father had slaved during the Holocaust, illuminated only by flashlights, the Fishers seek meaning in their personal and family histories. As their deepest pains are exposed, they find themselves crying and laughing, in bittersweet scenes that give this personal film a rare sense of intimacy.
