COMING OF AGE, an animated film based on the Holocaust survival story of David Wiener

An independent production of Lumen Animae Studios, L'Tamid (לתמיד) Project: animated films documenting stories of Holocaust survivors. Directed by Ruah Edelstein and Masha Vasilkovsky.

This half-feature-length film is made using the direct sand animation technique. Together with students, the directors interviewed David Wiener, Holocaust survivor from Lodz, Poland. Then the directors wrote the script based on that interview.

Students of the Advanced Animation class of Masha Vasilkovsky at College of the Canyons chose parts of the story, storyboarded those parts, then began the animation process. Currently, other scenes are being animated by Masha and Ruah at Lumen Animae Studios. We are also at the beginning stages of post-production. The film will be scored by Bernardo Feldman, the composer for our previous two films in L’Tamid series.
