    Name: Film and Panel: Monkey Business - The Adventures of Curious George's Creators
    Date: October 28, 2018
    Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    MONKEY BUSINESS recounts the extraordinary lives and harrowing journey of Hans and Margret Rey, the husband-and-wife duo who penned the beloved “Curious George” children’s books. It has been 75 years since Curious George first touched the hearts and minds of children around the world, but little is known about his creators, German Jews living in Paris who narrowly escaped Nazi occupation by fleeing on makeshift bicycles across Europe, carrying their yet-to-be-published “Curious George” “manuscript with them. In this vivid, mixed-media documentary, interviews are augmented by original hand-drawn animations and a treasure trove of archival materials from the Rey estate, including wartime journals, photographs, letters, and unpublished Curious George sketches and notes. A great introduction to the Holocaust for middle schoolers and up. Rec: Age 10+. Includes post-film panel and Q&A.
