The December film in the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center’s Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series will be Blinky and Me, which traces the past of a popular animator. It will screen at 1 pm on December 29, 2013, in the museum’s theatre in the Jewish Federation Kopolow Building, 12 Millstone Campus Drive.

The untold story of Australian animator Yoram Gross is documented in this 2012 film, which follows the artist and his family from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Poland, through Israel to Australia, where he found great success through children’s animated features. Gross has received the highest honors in Australia for his popular film series Blinky Bill.

Introductory remarks and a post-screening discussion will be presented by Pier Marton, a filmmaker, artist and writer who has lectured and shown his art at museums nationally and abroad. Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public.

Blinky and Me, written and directed by Tomasz Magierski, will be screened in English and Polish with English subtitles and has a running time of 75 minutes. For further information, call 314-442-3714 or email dreich@jfedstl.org.
