As the Holocaust survivor community ages, the USC Shoah Foundation has embarked on an ambitious new project to transform survivors into 3D digital projections that will interact with generations to come.

The film's Emmy Award-winning director, Davina Pardo, received ASF's Ronit Elkabetz «Rising Star» Pomegranate Award at the 20th NY Sephardic Jewish Film Festival.
