"Photographer, writer and conceptual artist Susan Silas jolts host Will Corwin out of his dart-night induced hangover with a sobering discussion of the death march of 580 women at the end of the Second World War. This march lasted 22 days and spanned 225 miles, from Germany to the Czech Republic. For Helmbrechts walk, 1998 - 2003, Silas retraced—literally walked in—the footsteps of these women and recorded her experience through photographs and writing. They also discuss Anselm Kiefer, Charlie Chaplin and the frenziedly ephemeral life cycle of the Tizsa River mayfly—only three hours to live and so very much sex to have! (36 minutes)."
