The Ties That Bind
The Ties That Bind is an experimental documentary about the filmmaker's mother, who was born and lived in southern Germany from 1920-1950. Through a mixture of personal anecdote and social history, she describes the rise of Nazism, the war years, and the Allied occupation, during which she met her future husband, an American soldier. The Ties That Bind breaks with the usual format of war documentaries, thus allowing a different portrait of the individual to emerge, while it reflects on the current political situation in America and the filmmaker's activities in relation to those issues.The Ties That Bind is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, and streaming on Fandor. It's an animation and documentary movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 6.9 (79 votes).
