EVERYTHING'S FOR YOU reflects the maker's relationship with his deceased father, a man who survived both the Lodz Ghetto and Auschwitz. The film utilizes a combination of previously-shot material (1974-1978), family photographs, archival footage, optically-printed current footage, cell animation sequences (by Emily Hubley), and computer graphics to create a mosaic, a meditation on filial relationships. Dialogue is in both Yiddish and English.
Funded in part by the Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts, Regional Fellowship Program.
