Voiced by an incredible cast of homegrown talent, this beautiful animation tells the story of German-Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon during her time in the South of France, before she was deported to Auschwitz by the Nazis.
During this period she created her fantastical memoir 'Leben? oder Theater?' ('Life? or Theatre?'), a collection of hundreds of gouaches, writings and musical references in an outpouring of urgent creativity, chronicling a life woven with family tragedy and external political turbulence.
