Event Details

With special guests, Hal Linden and Ryan Ochoa

Experiencing Holocaust survivor stories first-hand, and raised as the son of an Italian immigrant himself, The Samuel Project director/co-writer Marc Fusco became enthralled with one curiosity: How are grandchildren and great grandchildren of those survivors affected today? What goes on in a family dynamic where such memories are avoided and not passed down or even spoken about?

A film for both parents and grandparents to share with their children, The Samuel Project stars Hal Linden of Barney Miller fame as Samuel, a grandfather reconnecting with his grandson when he is made the subject of a high school project. Eli (Ryan Ochoa, iCarly) discovers that his grandpa, a Jewish dry cleaner, was heroically saved from Nazi capture in Germany. After some hesitation, Samuel agrees to tell his story for the project—a story he hasn't told in more than 75 years.

Cost: FREE
