Shelley Jordon, 2011
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Anita’s Journey is based on the true story of Anita Greenstein and her family, all of whom miraculously survived the Holocaust by hiding underground in and around Berlin. Jordon’s animation combines painting and drawing to illustrate the family’s story of survival from the unique perspective of 6-year-old Anita. Anita’s Journey was completed during a residency earlier this year in the Film/Video Studio Program. (8 mins., video)
