5 - Discovering Family - Samuel Project


THE SAMUEL PROJECT [10:00am, Feature Film, United States, 2018, 100 minutes, English] The Samuel Project is a comedic drama about Eli (Ryan Ochoa), a teenager who gets to know his grandfather Samuel (Hal Linden) for the first time when he makes him the subject of a senior-year animated art project. When the teen discovers that his grandpa, a Jewish dry cleaner, was heroically saved from Nazi capture in Germany by a young woman when he was a boy, Samuel agrees to tell his story — one he hasn’t told in more than 75 years. Eli unveils his animated movie at a county art showcase with the help of his unlikely friend Kasim, an electric guitar-wielding school misfit, and his project makes the finals. After many decades, three generations of Eli’s family finally connect with one another.
