The film will be The Samuel Project: an inter-generational story we will all relate to and enjoy.
Much to the annoyance of his father (Michael B. Silver), high school student Eli (Ryan Ochoa) isn’t interested in anything other than drawing and being an artist. However, a school project assigned by his media teacher (Philippe Bowgen), finally catches his attention. He has recently learned of the experiences of his Jewish grandfather Samuel (Hal Linden) during World War II, and he thinks the inspiring survival story will make for a great animated short film. It won three 2019 San Diego Film awards: Best Narrative Feature Film Best Actor: Hal Linden Best Director: Marc Fusco
