Metronome Ticking


Metronome Ticking is a docudrama based on the memoirs of a Jewish Holocaust survivor and the letters of a German propaganda officer during World War II who hated “Jews, Catholics, and Negroes.” Performed by their two sons, Bob Spitz and Henrik Eger, who exchange roles halfway through. Set during the Third Reich, the drama is brutally honest, yet uplifting. The experiences of an Austrian Holocaust survivor, fleeing across Europe, collide with the conflicting conscience and actions of a young Third Reich war correspondent in occupied France.
