Irit Reinheimer (ACG '06)
Of Origins is a series of short experimental documentary films about the lives and afterlives of a group of Jewish feminists 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 filmmaker’s fantasy of finding her radical prehistory. This first installment describes a love rooted in its 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.
