Four Parts of a Folding Screen

Four Parts of a Folding Screen explores exclusion, statelessness and the legalised theft and sale of everyday family possessions by the National Socialist regime during WWII. It tells the story of one Berlin-based Jewish family whose personal possessions were unjustly confiscated and auctioned off during WWII.

An enigmatic voice foretells, relates and recalls the routine processes of injustice and its legacy: the creation of a diaspora of household objects, scattered over buildings that no longer exist.

Directors Anthea Kennedy and Ian Wiblin manage to create poignant juxtapositions of the past and the present throughout the film.
