Overview

For as long as Sasha Joseph Neulinger can remember, his tight-knit family was on camera, with his father behind the lens to film their frequent gatherings. But in hindsight, it’s clear to all of them that the footage actually captures their unraveling, along with secrets, lies, and a history of child abuse.


In this devastatingly candid documentary, Neulinger enlists his parents, sister, and the mental-health and legal professionals who helped him throughout his childhood to retell the story of a multigenerational reckoning that also led to a high-stakes court battle and a media firestorm. Drawing upon incredibly revealing archival materials, Rewind explores just how much, and how little, that a video camera can expose—as well as just how much courage it requires to uncover the truth in the missing frames.

A man goes to his grandparents’ cabin in an attempt to revisit his childhood. That’s the plot—but Spanish director Oskar Alegria’s subtle, impressionistic follow-up to The Search for Emak Bakia (DFF39) explores much more than the unnamed narrator’s desire to exist outside of his own time.
