The Samuel Project
When one man’s story becomes art.
Eli (Ryan Ochoa) gets to know his grandfather Samuel (Hal Linden) for the first time when he makes him the subject of an animated art project for school. With dreams of becoming a professional artist, the high school senior discovers that his grandpa, a Jewish dry cleaner, was heroically saved from Nazi capture in Germany by a young woman when he was a boy.
“Art can unearth stories long-buried and bring to light stories so marginalized, they were never even told.” — Nadia Akiyama, The Samuel Project (USA, 2018, 92 minutes)
