"I would like that the next gen-
eration should know what hap-
pened to our people for no
reason...only because we were
Jews, nothing else."
Michael's father, Oskar, will
provide music for Among the
Rushes. A professional musician
(he plays the accordion), he will
compose and score folk music to
accompany the bittersweet jour-
ney home.
A "lively, energetic, humorous
man" and professional musician,
Osi Sladek often spoke of the
Holocaust to Michael as he was
growing up. But the film has
opened doors for at least one oth-
er family involved.
"The son of one of the men
called to thank me for doing this,"
he said. "He said his father hadn't
talked that much about the Holo-
caust in years."
Mr. Sladek hopes to begin film-
ing in Europe in late April. Mean-
while, he is raising money and
mustering support for the non-
profit project.
"It didn't take any arm twist-
ing to get it off the ground," he
said. 'We're working with people
who are very dedicated to this
cause, very passionate, and ea-
ger to have a chance to leave
something behind." ❑

Tips For Filmmakers

As screenwriter, producer
and/or director of 16 blockbuster
films including The Bodyguard,
Raiders of the Lost Ark, Body
Heat, The Big Chill, The Acci-
dental Tourist and Grand
Canyon, Lawrence Kasdan
knows a lot about filmmaking.
Kasdan humorously recalled
many a trial and tribulation
Monday night at the Birming-
ham Temple. Speaking to a
sellout crowd of more than 500,
Kasdan appeared at the event
to benefit the Eli Master Memo-
rial Scholarship for Humanis-
tic Rabbinical Training.
What should the fledgling
screenwriter look for when de-
veloping his or her script? Kas-
dan advises:
1. Does the movie fulfill the
promise you had to yourself
when creating it? Does it sat-
isfy you?
2. Will it stand the test of
time — after 10, 20, or 100
years? How does the work hold
up? What feelings does it com-
municate? ❑

— Julie Smith Yolles

in Hollywood, see related story
