"Thank you so much for sharing this extraordinary project. I watched both the preview as well as the film, and was touched by the powerful story as well as the partnership between Ingrid and Perry Chen. What a unique and creative approach to Holocaust education! I'm honored to have seen the film."
- Stacy Schiller, Acting Director Holocaust Resource Center/Diversity Council, Kean University, NJ

About the short film

Memories from the Holocaust have been portrayed in almost every medium, but rarely animation -- and never before by a child animator. Animated short film "INGRID PITT: BEYOND THE FOREST" is a cross-generational collaboration between a world-class animation master, two-time Academy Award-nominated Bill Plympton, and a first-time animator, 11-year-old artist Perry Chen. It is narrated by Ingrid Pitt herself.

Starting with Ingrid Pitt's poignant narration and Bill Plympton's 23 traditional pencil sketches as storyboard, award-winning artist and film critic Perry Chen brings this moving story and its contemporary implications alive. Read more
