Heartwarming WWII Film 'Shepherd: The Story of a Jewish Dog' Screens at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on May 26th
Q&A immediately following with award-winning filmmaker Lynn Roth.
An incredible true story from the producers of "Call Me By Your Name," and based on the acclaimed, bestselling Israeli novel. The film follows the journey to freedom when a young Jewish boy and his German Shepherd dog are reunited in the Treblinka concentration camp during World War II and then attempt to escape.
Director and screenwriter Lynn Roth shared, "This film embodies the two aspects of life which continue to confound me the most: the fascinating quality of dogs — what goes on in these creatures minds and how they provide so much love and companionship to the human species... and how the world tolerated 'animals' who came to power in Germany and Austria and almost destroyed an entire people."
Immediately following the screening, Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s "Must See Movies," will moderate a Q&A with award-winning filmmaker Lynn Roth.
The film screens on Wednesday, May 26 at 7 p.m. PDT. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
