The Last Flight of Petr Ginz

Next week we'll be attending the premiere of The Last Flight of Petr Ginz at the Lincoln Center in NYC.

About the Film:

By 14 Petr Ginz had written five novels and penned a diary about the Nazi occupation of Prague. By 16 he had produced 120 drawings and paintings, edited an underground magazine in the Theresienstadt Ghetto, written numerous short stories and had walked to the gas chamber at Auschwitz.

Cory Godbey acted as the Art Director for the animated portions of the documentary and created the art for animation by Danny McNight. Cory also prepared many of Petr Ginz’s original drawings and paintings for animation.

The film premiers at the Walter Reade Theater,
Lincoln Center on March 16th.

I can't wait to see the completed film.
