Digital Storytelling: “A Wrinkle In Time,” by Paul Zakrzewski

Paul Zakrzewski has many literary talents, and to his collection of authorial skills he has recently added digital storytelling. An early result: this short video essay, “A Wrinkle in Time.”

As Paul explains:

This short video essay covers a trip to Poland I took with my wife and 13-month-old son. That was in July 2008.

We spent a week with Genia Olczak, who was my dad’s nanny before WWII and hid him and several other Jewish family members during the Holocaust.

The film was made in a workshop sponsored by the Center for Digital Storytelling in April 2011.

Genia passed away in September 2008, a month after our trip. She was 95.
