At 18 years old, Nathan Hilu, a Syrian Jew from New York, received an assignment from the US Army that would grow to define his life – to guard the masterminds of the Holocaust at the Nuremberg trials. This experience fueled a lifetime of artistic inspiration for Nathan, a virtually unknown “outsider” artist, who spent the next 70 years obsessively creating a visual narrative from his memories. But what happens when those memories take on a life of their own?

NATHAN-ISM explores Nathan’s relationship with his own stories, and the compulsion he has to share them with a world that doesn’t always listen.
