Pearl Harbor Day …. please let’s all remember.
On a happier note, the January 2007 issue of the national magazine, Documentary, arrived today and features this blurb about Freedom Dance.
Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay recently recorded the narration for Freedom Dance, an animated documentary by Emmy-nominated producer Steven Fischer and Telly Award-winning animator Craig Herron, retelling the story of artist Edward Hilbert who, during his four months on the road to freedom with his newly wedded wife, kept a journal of cartoons detailing an adventurous escape from communist Hungary to the US during Hungary’s bloody 1956 revolution against Soviet occupation.
“What impressed me most about Mariska was how seriously she took the role,” notes Fischer about the September 22nd recording session at Gramercy Post in New York City. “She prepared extensively and performed with energetic enthusiasm. For someone in her position to invest all of that into a low-budget movie says a lot for her personal character.”
