She’s afraid of 80, that as an old lady she’ll lament
she never once got to the circus.

She gets up from her seat, leaves behind unsipped tea. Her sadness she leaves with a crisp dollar tip till the waitress wipes it clean.

It is 2am when I come across Shoah. The 1985 documentary directed by Claude Lanzmann demands my attention, practically reaching out from the screen to give me a good shake. Maybe it’s the 9+ hour runtime, or the shadowy film poster featuring a train conductor with a nightmarish look in his eyes, or the many reviews calling it the one of the most (if not the most) important documentary ever made.
