“Art can unearth stories long-buried and bring to light stories so marginalized, they were never even told.” —Nadia Akiyama, The Samuel Project
Eli (played by Ryan Ochoa) connects with his isolated grandfather Samuel (played by Hal Linden) for the first time, and uncovers his surprising past, when he makes his grandpa 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.
