Mon yiddish papi

| 7 min

Une jeune femme décide de ne pas répondre à un appel téléphonique de son grand-père, sans savoir que ce sera le dernier. Après la mort de celui-ci, submergée par la culpabilité et les regrets, elle peine à trouver le sommeil. Elle se souvient alors de cette promesse faite jadis : celle de dessiner les aventures de son grand-père, résistant durant la guerre. En coproduction avec Picbois Productions.

Prepare students in advance for the emotional content in the film.

Discussion: After viewing, ask students to recount the main events of Papi’s story. The narrator begins by wondering, “What could I have done to deserve so much love?” Based on what you have seen in the film, what conclusions can you draw? As a follow-up activity, ask someone in your family to tell you about a difficult time in their life and then create something to give them in appreciation. For example, a song, poem, illustration or digital photo collage.
