In two huge rooms, discover hundreds of old photographs: children in their Sunday best, families gathered, groups of friends, athletes or colleagues, etc., and discover that in each picture we also see a teddy bear… How and why did Ydessa, a Canadian woman born of German Jewish parents, collect these photographs along with a few reassuring bears typical of the era? A closer look reveals a certain amount of anxiety. In fact, the filmed visit of this collection, exhibited in Munich, is full of surprises.
