The Blackouts – Muistikatkoksia – Zacmienia. Poster for a documentary film by Oliwia and Jerem Tonteri.

The Blackouts shows the family’s broken memories. A child losing her culture since moving to another country. A family with lost Jewish traditions between generations. A city demolished in the Second World War.

They all miss something. There is a hole in their memory.

 A minimalistic logo motion title for an insightful documentary film “The Blackouts” (Muistikatkoksia). Here played without the music.
