“Counterlight”, 3rd part of Maya Zack's Memory Trilogy, is a hypnotic journey into the depths of consciousness that follows the traces of poet Paul Celan.An archivist listens to extracts from recordings by Celan, dissects the archival materials, penetrates the space of an old street photo of 1937 Czernowitz and resurrects the past in a female alchemy.
