The film DRAWING AGAINST OBLIVION documents the creation of Manfred Bockelmann’s series of works by the same name. In powerful pictures, carried by the intensity of the artist’s undertaking, this film bows to the countless children who were murdered by the Nazis, and with distressing stories at the same time reminds us of those who survived and still live with the incomprehensible past today.
