This intimate and homey portrait of the life and work of Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and artist Art Spiegelman reveals him to be as witty, fascinating, and fiercely insightful in person as his extraordinary creative output would lead you to believe. Spiegelman evokes rich childhood memories and reflects on the evolution of his seminal work Maus, his development into a key figure in the underground comics movement, and more.

World Premiere!

A deeply moving short documentary about the desperate acts of condemned parents to save their children. Łapy was one of several stations in occupied Poland on the way to the Nazi death camp of Treblinka. Trains transporting Jews would slow down there and sometimes briefly stop while the tracks were being adjusted. Some parents managed to save small children by throwing them off the train; the last eyewitnesses to this story remember these times. Polish with English subtitles.
