In 1940, Soviet soldiers deported Irena from her hometown of Stolowicze, Poland. She never returned. Seventy years later, her grandson travels to this small village, now in Belarus to connect with the time and events surrounding the deportations.
This is a short film that I produced for SWAMP (Southwest Alternative Media Project) in Houston. Below is the description they provide:
"The tragedy of war and displacement is recounted as the filmmaker traces his personal history in a lovely, poetic tribute to family and survival."
