Film producer David Haspel, a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, is bringing the documentary "Borrowing Time" to Harkins Theater in Bricktown, today at 7 p.m. In honor of this film project, Harkins Theater has set the ticket price at $1, with?all proceeds and donations to be given to the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City's Holocaust Education and Remembrance?fund.
"Borrowing Time" tells the inspiring story of Henri Landwrith, who, having survived five harrowing years in Auschwitz and barely escaped death, has been living on borrowed time.?Mr.?Landwrith received the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter?Award for?Contributions to the Health of Mankind and the Ellis Island Medal of Honor Award for his philanthropic establishment of "Give Kids the World" to help terminally ill children and "Dignity-U-Wear" to clothe the homeless.
"Landwrith has dedicated his life to make good overcome evil. His good works make it clear that it's not about what's wrong with this world,?it's about what's?right," Haspel said.
"The timeless and universal themes of the film address the issues of moving from recovery to hope, and what you can do with your own life when you're living on borrowed time."
This film is considered appropriate for school age students. Following the film's Oklahoma City premiere, producer David Haspel will make a short presentation and be available for questions from the audience. For more information, call the Jewish Federation at 848-3132, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
