AbsentFor over a century, Mărculeşti was a vibrant Jewish agricultural and mercantile community in Bessarabia (now present-day Moldova). In July 1941, the village was the site of an unimaginable atrocity. Seventy-four years later, few speak honestly about what happened. Absent is a cinematic portrait of the ghost village of Mărculeşti, its current inhabitants, and their complex relationship with history.

USA, Romania, Switzerland, 2015, 71 mins., directed by Matthew Mishory, English, Russian, Romanian with English subtitles
