Synopsis
When Vera Bondy came to Montréal in 1953, she had already
decided to leave her past behind, to become a ‘normal’ person
again. She enjoys living in this lively city and appreciates it for
its cultural diversity and the omnipresence of the arts. Art, she
says, is good company.
But over the years she has realized that time doesn't heal, and the past becomes more present every day. Until it finally appears again in the very concrete form of ‘Hlas Pudy’ a magazine written by children in the Terezín ghetto in 1944 – the editor being Vera's then 12-yearold sister, Mariana Kornová.
VOICES OF THE ATTIC is a portrait of a fascinating woman, an essay on remembering, and a tribute to a precious and haunting work of art.
