When a Flame Stands Still

dir. Michael Mike Canon, USA 2016, 18’

In Nazi Germany, a young Jewish couple takes on a cultural practice that prohibits them from making physical contact. As they yearn for each other's touch, they express their love in ways they never could have imagined. In the midst of the Holocaust, the young couple hides in two claustrophobic bunkers that are only a wall apart. As their love grows, the hatred during the Holocaust rises...and as their touch gets closer, so does the Gestapo. Language: Language: Yiddish, German, English. Subtitles: Polish
