The title Munich August 2018 (2018) refers to the period of time that the filmmaker had spent with his mother, who after 25 years of living with the filmmaker and their family, in Sydney, Australia, now lives in Munich, Germany. With minimal exposition, the film is both an observation of the place in which the filmmaker’s mother now resides, as well as an experiment in the documentation of family oral history and the discourse shared between loved ones in the wake of recent trauma.
