Maya Zack created a new film that was a private adventure into the mind and spirit of Jewish poet and holocaust survivor Paul Celan (1920-1970), who is considered as one of the major poets of the modern-postmodern era, while his oeuvre is at the heart of the discourse that ties together poetry, history, art theory and metaphysics. Zack aims to create a surreal journey into the past, into memory, and into/through Paul Celan’s writing processes.
