Black&White

IF/Then Short Documentary Program | 2018 (East Doc Platform )

Black&White deconstructs and reconstructs an urban legend about a killer nurse from WWII Czechoslovakia. With nurses and Nazis, syphilis and seduction, we explore how stories evolve and how they affect our unconscious perceptions of women’s role in wartime, heroism and revenge. Blending reality and imagination, documentary and animation, this short doc is a visualization of this woman as seen through the eyes of her neighbors in the present day.
