The Bag of a Thousand Pockets

  • 8'
  • United Kingdom
  • 2002
A small, personal and moving documentary about the father of the film maker. The title refers to a statement by her father: 'My bag has a thousand pockets. In each is a memory'. Old Mr Kennedy has a lot to remember (he lived through both world wars and was driven from Germany by the persecution of the Jews), but tragically enough, his memory is increasingly failing him.
