An unflinching and moving personal narrative documentary that reconstructs the disturbing story of director Sasha Joseph Neulinger’s boyhood and bravely exposes the insidious abuse passed along through generations. Rewind is produced by Bozeman-based Production Companies Step 1 Films and Grizzly Creek Films, in association with Cedar Creek Films. Not rated, the film contains sensitive and mature content not suitable for youth.
In Rewind, a stunning documentary years in the making, director/filmmaker Sasha Joseph Neulinger shares his vivid childhood memories of a family plagued by a vicious cycle of childhood abuse. Produced and shot by a team of Montana-based filmmakers, this powerful and intimate family portrait features an incredible home movie collection that not only provides a stark contrast to the family today, but also offers rare glimpses into visual clues about family dynamics and the actual offenders. As riveting as any moral thriller, this unflinching documentary braids the vast visual archive into Neulinger’s contemporary investigation to seek justice through the criminal court system – and healing for himself and his family.

Upon finishing film school at Montana State University at age 23, he discovered the raw materials that would propel him to tell the story of his life.
