116 Cameras follows a Holocaust vurvivor as she is transformed into an interactive hologram. In collaboration with the University of Southern California's Institute for Creative Technologies, The Shoah Foundation is transforming a number of Holocaust survivors into 3D digital projections that will interact with generations to come.
Director Davina Pardo will capture this project to make a film that explores the nature of history, memory and testimony. As the Holocaust survivor population ages, the day is near when in-person testimony will no longer be possible. Pardo says she hopes to make a documentary not about history itself, but about how the past is remembered and recounted, a film that addresses the pressing question of what will happen when witnesses are no longer with us.
The director will combine the hologram process with past and present interview footage of the survivor.
All donations for the production and distribution of 116 Cameras are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
