‘Ex Libris’ by Melissa Hacker

Ex Libris is a hybrid non-fiction film using animation, collage, and first person narrative to trace the vanished world of the ex libris collection my grandfather, Marco Birnholz, commissioned, created and lost in Vienna between the two world wars. Ex Libris will explore the intimate, intricate universe my grandfather created in his collection, and the exploding world he recorded in his diaries.

Ex Libris will be completed in spring 2013.
