For 50 years a family archive sat in the dark, until Rotem persuaded her mother Varda to watch her childhood anew. 8mm films were discovered as documentation of an amateur filmmaker, Varda's mother, who documented her life in Tel Aviv in the late 1960s. The films shed light on past memories mixed with the present; of mother-daughter relationships.
