Film description

An illustrated history of the Jews of Lower Silesia. Publicist and director Leo Kantor tells, in a personal manner, the story of a community that created things, built things, and fought for survival in order to share the fate of Atlantis, to disappear, to become a legend. His words are accompanied by archival photographs. W poszukiwaniu utraconego krajobrazu (In Search of The Lost Landscape) develops some of the themes from his last film, Tam, gdzie rosną porzeczki (Redcurrants).
