7:00 p.m. The Samuel Project

USA, 93 min.
Directed by Marc Fusco

In this heartwarming and sometimes humorous English language film, Eli gets to know his grandfather Samuel when he makes him the subject of an animated art project for school. With dreams of becoming a professional artist, Eli discovers that his Jewish grandpa, a San Diego dry cleaner, was heroically saved from Nazi capture in Germany by a young woman when he was a boy.  As they reconnect and strengthen their relationship, the teenager hears the story that hasn’t been told in 75 years. Nice family film for ages 10+.
