Rob Carter describes his film:
"My visit to the Ebensee Nazi concentration camp in Austria in 2010 was not only highly disquieting but also left a lasting emotional imprint on my mind. Instantly moved by the place, I felt troubled for taking the few photographs I did. So instead, I turned my camera on the breathtaking landscape of the area, especially Lake Traunsee.
Ultimately it is impossible to comprehend the horror and atrocities that occurred at Ebensee between 1943 and 1945. I was mesmerized by the haunting beauty of the area, the peace and stillness. In shocking contrast, deep within the rock, the remnants of armament bunkers and tunnels remain and their silence barely contains the remembrance of the terrible noise.
Using time-lapse photography shot during my visit and stop-motion animation shot this year, the video is an attempt to describe the layered history that lies within the town and landscape of Ebensee. Separated from the disturbing images we have of the camp's liberation, this video uses the images of the contemporary visitor to re-animate the place and describe how the land has recovered its tranquility but not its innocence."
