Dear Mr. Waldman
Filmfest 2007

Dear Mr. Waldman is a coming-of-age story set in the Sixties that deals with a boy's attempt to console his father, a Holocaust survivor who is grieving over the loss of his family in World War II. While at times the pathos threatens to overwhelm the drama, the vividly drawn characters manage to remind the audience that these are real people trying their best to cope with overwhelming problems, and not the stereotypes we've seen too many times in lesser dramas. Jeruslem Post, online edition, Jan 2, 2007 "As I grew up I fought against this unbearable burden that blocked me from developing my own life and sometimes even managed to lead a normal life, but as a young boy I was defenseless and took this duty without hesitations, questions or resistance. By the age of ten I had become a parent of my parents." Hanan Peled, 2006
