“On my 18th birthday, my mother handed me a piece of paper on which she had written 10 points that she wanted to pass on to me in adulthood. Item one read: ‘The purpose of our lives is to evolve towards perfection. Nothing that is created and good is ever thrown away. Everything builds on previous achievements. You are descended from Joseph’s brother Levi, who lived 3,000 years ago.’ My mother collated and archived her own life. I inherited it and made it into a film that is primarily about perception, my legacy and addressing history. It is an attempt to share what was said and not said in my family, using objects, photos, audio and video material. The film is about trauma and at the same time about how history can be produced, archived, brought into conversations, and categorized, both at the macro- and micro-level, and how I continued to collect in order to tell a story.” (A. Levi)
