Photograph Inspires Ravett’s Latest Film Project

August 13, 2014 – 10:33 am |

ravett-ilsaA single image led Professor of Film and Photography Abraham Ravett back to his birth country of Poland for his newest film project, Holding Hands with Ilsa.

The photograph, taken in a meadow near his hometown of Walbrzych in Poland in 1950, captures Ravett at the age of three with his teenaged babysitter Ilsa. Ravett and his family left Poland for Israel (before settling in Brooklyn in 1955) shortly after the photograph was taken, and he never saw or heard from Ilsa again. Through this film, he hopes to find out more about who Ilsa was.

Ravett realizes that his journey probably won’t end in re-acquaintance with Ilsa. He knows she was a German national who lived in the city, but he doesn’t know her last name. She would be in her late 70s, but he has no idea where she may be living today if she is still alive.
