"To Those Born After" (2006; 29mins; HD), which premiered in competition at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam is a highly layered meditation on the ideological situation of the United States in the first four or five years after the attacks of September 11. John Berger said that one watches this "film like one reads a book" as it "accompanies us like a pilgrim's staff on a trip around the world."
"To Those Born After" is inspired by the poem of the same title written by Bertolt Brecht during the "dark times" of the Hitler Years. As the poem does, this film asks what we owe to future generations--a question that was pressing during the dark days of the so-called "war on terror" and that is equally urgent today at a time that seems potentially even darker.
