Video Descriptions

REWIND Documentary | Official Trailer (2020)

In his candid personal memoir, Sasha Joseph Neulinger revisits his childhood and the events that tore apart his seemingly-perfect world. For as long as Neulinger can remember, his father was constantly filming. But his camera, trained on the frequent gatherings of a tight-knit family, also captured the story of an unraveling childhood, a media firestorm, a high-stakes court battle, and a generational reckoning. Drawing upon an incredibly revealing home video archive, REWIND probes the gap between image and reality and proves just how little, and how much, a camera can capture.

Rewind | Private Screening Room

120 minutes



    For as long as Sasha Joseph Neulinger can remember, a video camera was ever-present, his father constantly filming. But his father’s camera, trained on the celebrations and frequent gatherings of a tight-knit family, was also documenting a hidden secret. It was a secret that eight-year-old Sasha could not keep. The truth sparked a media firestorm, a high-stakes court battle, and a generational reckoning. Now in his twenties, Neulinger draws upon a revealing home video archive to piece together an unflinching story of the cycles and consequences of abuse, to examine what it means to heal, and to effect positive change in the world. REWIND probes the gap between image and reality, showing both how little, and how much, a camera can capture.
