Based on a story by Slovak musicologist Agata Shinglerová, In Silence is a stylized docu-drama about the fate of five Jewish musicians, juxtaposing their prosperous prewar lives with the horrors of the concentration camp alleviated by music. Karol Elbert, Alica Flachová, Edith Kraus, Arthur Chitz and Jozef Weiss voice their own stories, contemplating events as they experience them. Poetic and hypnotic, with strong musical and visual components, this beautifully composed film provides an innovative take on Holocaust themes.
