More Than Stories examines the archive materials from the research processes
that culminated in Anya Lewinʼs film cycle With Heartfelt Gratitude for the
Painless Treatment (2008), Chez Paulette on the Sunset Strip (2013), and Fez:
The Royal Scent (2019). Together with film and production stills, excerpts from
the filmsʼ screenplays, and Anyaʼs introductory text, the book interweaves the
haunted memories of Jewish life embedded in her family stories, wandering
through the cities that her father in habited: Cairo, Berlin, and Los Angeles.
