‘Watch’ is a collaboration between a poet, Leah Thorn, and a filmmaker, Ewan Golder, exploring the themes of loss, vulnerability, survival and memorialisation. Using family Super 8 film, poetry, story-telling, photography and found footage, the film reveals the centrality of memory to Jewish identity and the impact of Alzheimer’s on Leah’s relationship with her father.
'Watch' has been selected by film festivals, including the UK Jewish Film Festival.
The film will be followed by a conversation between Leah and Martin Shovel, a local cartoonist and writer, about the autobiographical creative exploration of identity and the use of art as activism.
