  • Title:
    Purity Beats Everything
  • Author: Jon Bang Carlsen (1950) director; Marianne Christensen producer; Jon Bang Carlsen (1950) producer
  • Description: Purity Beats Everything is about growing up in a thatched silence in an idyllic country neighbouring Germany. And the uneasy silence that reveals itself as the absence of truth about one's own culture's involvement with the incomprehensible evil that stems from trying to 'purify' other cultures. By following the tale of two Auschwitz survivors who fled to South Africa, the film leads us into a devastating past that leads straight into our future. Acclaimed director Jon Bang Carlsen weaves his own day-to-day life and his own memories into the stories of these individual fates.
