Fear and fascination arise in Muriel Grey when she remembers her father, one of the only black survivors of the Mauthausen concentration camp.

Synopsis

Fear and fascination arise in Muriel Grey when she remembers her father. As one of the only Black men known to have been imprisoned at the Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria, the life of José Carlos Grey-Molay has been of interest to historians of the Second World War and the Holocaust. The historic archive contains two pictures of the young José Carlos dressed in formal-looking attire at the camp, as well as stories of a Black man from Barcelona who confused the prejudices of his Nazi captors, but little else was known about him. In this short film, his daughter now tells her father’s improbable life story, from his childhood in Spanish Guinea, to his years as a freedom fighter in the Spanish Civil War and the French Resistance, to his time in Mauthausen, to his postwar years in France. Enric Ribes weaves recreated home movies, family snapshots, and archival records, creating a meaningful historical document from what is a daughter’s love letter to her beloved late father.
