Of Orgins, Part 1: Hannah

Of Origins is a series of short experimental documentary films about the lives and afterlives of a group of Jewish feminist in Germany in the early and mid-20th century. Each short film is a speculative love letter, spun out of strange incidents in the archives and the filmmakers's fantasy of finding her radical prehistory. This first installment describes a love rooted in it's own time and place, neither apocalyptic nor nostalgic. Hannah, uses archival footage, home movies, and rotoscoping to orient the viewer in queer bond forged across time. Directed by Irit Reinheimer
