A String of Pearls: The Small Miracles of Charles Middleberg, is a moving collection of storytelling gems... or pearls, the extraordinary childhood memories of a survivor now in his nineties. With charm, passion, wit and exceptionally sharp recall, you will be drawn into Charles' childhood stories based in WWII occupied Paris. One viewer described feeling emotions she'd never felt before...
The screening of 39 minutes in length will be followed by a presentation from the filmmaker/director of Cyclorama Films himself, Joe Brin. You will also have a chance to look at Joe Brin's new book BUOYANT: A Child's Journey of Survival. The book is based on A String of Pearls. Copies will be on hand for signing at the screening.
