The birth of the world’s most popular primate
Narrated by Sam Waterston, this film chronicles the story of George’s creators, Hans and Margret Rey. From fleeing the Nazis on self-made bicycles to encounters with exotic animals in Brazil, the Reys lived lives of adventure that are reflected in the pages of the popular children’s book series, first created 75 years ago. The film brilliantly interweaves archival footage and interviews with them, their friends and experts, along with animated sequences in a style inspired by the world of Curious George.

It is very exciting that the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival will have the St. Louis Premiere of this wonderful new documentary film about Curious George’s creators. The first 100 households will also receive a copy of a Curious George book thanks to the generosity of Ready Readers.
