Twelve years after the release of his landmark film Shtetl, Emmy Award-winning director (and Holocaust survivor) Marian Marzynski, a pioneer of European cinéma-vérité, returns to one of his favorite subjects – the mystery of survival during the Holocaust. Settlement, the most recent of Marzynski’s critically-lauded autobiographical films, benefits from the director’s highly personal approach to filmmaking and his subject.

A welcome discovery draws Marzynski back to Poland, to the shtetl house of the Kushner family. With the Holocaust came the destruction of the Kushners, whose few survivors fled to the corners of the globe. Sixty years after World War II, Marzynski explores what became of them. Traveling to Poland, the United States, Israel, and a West Bank settlement, Marzynski visits the past—his past—but arrives at the future, to a family he never knew existed.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

“Marzynski is one of the greatest American documentary filmmakers yet to be discovered by the public.”
– Gerald Peary, Film Critic & Scholar

“A beautiful, powerful, important movie.”
– Emily Rubin, Writer & Journalist

“Deeply moving story that says so much about human experience. Moved me and surprised me.”
– Ken Dornstein, Senior Producer, Frontline
