Film: The Ties That Bind 1985
The Ties That Bind is a 1985 Documentary directed and written by Su Friedrich as well as starring Lore Bucher as herself.

The Ties That Bind is an experimental documentary about the filmmaker's mother, who was born and lived in southern Germany from 1920-1950. Through a mixture of personal anecdote and social history, she describes the rise of Nazism, the war years, and the Allied occupation, during which she met her future husband, an American soldier. The Ties That Bind breaks with the usual format of war documentaries, thus allowing a different portrait of the individual to emerge, while it reflects on the current political situation in America and the filmmaker's activities in relation to those issues.

Should not be confused with the books The Ties That Bind by Vanessa Duriès, Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice: The Ties That Bind and Ties That Bind by Guy Baldwin. Should not be confused with the Fan Fic Ties That Bind. Should not be confused with the songs The Ties That Bind by Bruce Springsteen and Ties That Bind by Alter Bridge.

Should not be confused with the animated tie-in for Street Fighter IV titled Street Fighter IV The Ties That Bind. Should not be confused with the Thriller Ties That Bind 2006, and the Made-for-TV Movie Ties That Bind 2010. Should not be confused with the Video Game The Suffering: Ties That Bind.

This film provides examples of:

  • Deliberately Monochrome: This film is in black and white, despite being released in 1985. This is probably to show that this is in the past.
  • Final Solution: The Holocaust is one of the topics of the documentary.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: This documentary features Nazis as one of the topics.
