Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Sadly, this documentary doesn’t quite get us inside the desperate walls of the Mount Carmel centre. It never seems quite sure of what it wants to be. Despite the involvement of several of youthful siege veterans, it doesn’t go deep enough into the difficult emotional terrain. But it’s not comprehensive enough work as a summation of the events as a whole either. Instead, it feels strangely incurious. No one can blame these young adults for their struggles to explain the traumatic events of their childhoods. But the filmmakers simply haven’t managed to fill in enough of the blanks.
