GS | Marc Bennett, Director of the animated short, The Tattooed Torah | Dec 6, 2020

Over the last three decades, the beloved children’s book by Marvell Ginsburg, “The Tattooed Torah,” has been a powerful resource for Holocaust education for children all over the world.

The book recounts the true story of the rescue and restoration of a small Torah from Brno, Czechoslovakia, and teaches the Holocaust not only as a period of destruction but also as an opportunity for redemption.

The adaptation of THE TATTOOED TORAH into an animated short film is a three-generational endeavor, initiated by Marvell Ginsburg’s daughter, Beth Kopin, one of the film’s executive producers, who first dreamed to transform the book into a film, and Beth’s son Brett, the co-screenwriter of the screenplay, a rabbinical student in Los Angeles.

Today we sit with Marc Bennett, the Director of the animated short THE TATTOOED TORAH.

Excellent resources for comic books and writing. 

 

Are all of these podcasts an echo chamber? What is the marketing strategy? Are they moving YOU forward or do they "allow you" to be a seat warmer while patting their own back?
