‘Mythical Creatures’, A Documentary About Artist Gary Baseman’s Parents’ Experience During the Holocaust

Mythical Creatures is an upcoming documentary by filmmaker David Charles focusing on Emmy-winning artist Gary Baseman as he travels to Ukraine to tell the story of what his parents experienced during the Holocaust. The film, which combines a number of different media to tell the story, is currently raising funds via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

We’re determined to make a film that creates an emotional connection and educates an entire new generation about the holocaust, using animation, performance and an installation that I’ll create in collaboration with Ukrainian artists in my hometown.
