"How moving! The darkness to the light, the simplicity and the music all blend perfectly into the storyboard. I want to help you get this film to as many people as possible."
- Lea Wolinetz, Representative of World Holocaust Survivors (Czestochowa), Second Generation and The Museum of the History of the Polish Jews
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.
