In the film Captured, filmmakers Arnoud Holleman and Batya Wolff show how photography and film are intertwined with the after-effects of the Holocaust in Batya’s family. Her father Max Wolff (1926) bought a camera after the war and now preserves tens of thousands of “moments” in an enormous image archive. Photography was his coping mechanism for dealing with his war trauma, but at the same time the war always remained present in his home. That put a brake on his daughter’s life. Can she free herself from a war that was already over before she was born?
