Sexual abuse, repression and videotape

As a child, Sasha Joseph Neulinger was sexually abused by a relative. In this brave and disturbing documentary, he confronts his past by diving into his family’s archive of videotapes. As the audience explores this footage alongside Neullinger, we are treated to a gut-wrenching portrait of a young boy struggling with emotions and secrets neither he nor his parents understand. REWIND is a tale of uncovering abuse and overcoming trauma in the vein of CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS (BIFF 2003) – and a haunting meditation on memory and documentation.
