- Jeannette Schwager
Combining music and intuition is at the heart of all that I do and this short film is no different. The imagery is a reflection of my creative process in uncovering a long hidden ancestral story about my paternal grandfather, using dreams plus historical and genealogical research. With the visual effects I reference my Dutch mother's love for gum bichromate photography, developing photos with paints and sunlight. The archival footage depicts the American pilots that helped free Europe from the Nazis. It was a time when all the members of my family were trapped by the conflict and senselessness of war on two continents at once.
