Anri Salas 1998 documentary Intervista tells the story of him finding a tape without sound, clearly depicting his mother next to the Albanian Communist Party chief Enver Hoxha at a youth convention. Afterwards his mother is talking in a TV interview, but the sound is absent. Sala now begins his research to find out what his mother said, turns to former party members and the TV station, without success, and ends up with a teacher of sign language who deciphers his mothers‘ lips. Confronting her with what she has said originally, Anris mother goes through a full set of emotions from denial and shame to rationalization and regret.
