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)
