BIRTHPLACE

POLISH TITLE: MIEJSCE URODZENIA

Henryk Grynberg, a Polish Jew now living in the United States, returns to Poland to find out who murdered his father during World War II. Unbelievable confrontations are documented, as villagers deny guilt and implicate one another. Digging through layers of memory and through the Polish soil itself, Henryk's dramatic discovery becomes a revelation for the entire village. A complex, disturbing and deeply moving film.
