Slowly here below. Four monologues

DE 2021, 122 min, Siegfried Ressel, Hannes Richter

Raymond Renaud, a retired postman in rural France. Zahava Stessel, a former librarian in New York. Ivan Ivanji, a Serbian writer, theatre director, and diplomat. Alexander Bychok, a lifelong factory worker in Kiev. They all have one thing in common, they are former prisoners of German concentration camps and survivors of the Holocaust. But what came after that? How can life go on after being in Auschwitz or Buchenwald? Being witness to a time while at the same time individuals? Mundane reality is turned upside down and questioned. Layers of experience create dissonance, permeating the ordinary with the unimaginable. In extended monologues, the four protagonists talk about themselves. They will always be connected to their experiences in the camps while also always looking to the future. The camera observes them calmly in their living spaces. The result is a portrait of four very special people.
