Acclaimed writer/director Lynn Roth (The Little Traitor), is back with her second feature, based on the award-winning and best-selling Israeli novel, The Jewish Dog, by Asher Kravitz. Kaleb is a beautiful German Shepherd who lives with a Jewish family in 1930s Berlin. When a Nuremberg law passes that Jews can no longer own pets, the family is forced to give Kaleb away and separate him from his beloved 10 year old master, Joshua. He is adopted by an SS officer in a concentration camp and retrained to round up Jewish prisoners. He is well cared for and good at his job until one day when he is distracted by a familiar scent. Joshua, has arrived as captive at the camp. What ensues during this time is seen through the eyes of the dog.
Q&A with award-winning director Lynn Roth and actor August Maturo (Girl Meets World) who plays Joshua.
