Ezra Schwartz: In the summer of 1992 I was looking for a short story to animate. Nothing seemed to click, until I read "Gimpel The Fool" by Isaac Bashevis Singer. I realized that the characters, beliefs and conflicts in this wonderful story were related to me, my family and people I knew -- Eastern European Jews who emigrated to Israel after the second world war.
