Ernest passed away in 1992. He left behind tape recordings for his family telling his story. Grandpa never spoke about the Holocaust or what he experienced, yet he retells his stories with impeccable detail. Grandpa Ernest Speaks is about memory being passed down through generations – and a director’s urge to tell the story of a family member she never met. It’s a journey in introspection with conversations at the dinner table amongst Ernest’s children and grandchildren. And as the world gets darker, we’re all turning to look at ourselves and our stories.
