A Unique Collaboration - Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest
Sadly, Pitt did not live to see the completed film, having passed away suddenly on Nov. 23, 2010 at the age of 73. However, her story lives on due to the delicate touch of Michaels, Plympton and Chen.
The film will premiere at the 15th LA Shorts Film Festival (http://LAShortsFest.com) on July 23, 2011, an Academy Award-qualifying festival for shorts, and at Comic-Con on July 24, 2011 with a panel discussion “Holocaust Through the Eyes of a Child, Animated by a Child,” about the making of this film (http://www.comic-con.org). Additionally, the short will screen alongside Adventures in Plymptoons! for ASIFA-Hollywood members on July 28th, 2011, 7pm, at Woodbury University's Fletcher Jones Auditorium at 7500 N Glenoaks Blvd., Burbank, CA 91504.
