Chen Drachman (Executive producer, screenplay, actress) is an Israeli-American based in NYC. She became a permanent resident through an application of excellence in the field of production. Chen is an actress (Last Week Tonight, BlackBox, The Path) and a writer with scripts that have been finalists/official selections in festivals around the world.
She was a film and TV major in Israel (graduated with honors) and an acting major in NYC.
The story of Ruth's is especially relevant to Chen who is third generation to Holocaust survivors. She loved the chance to bring this "what if" story to life, and hopes it encourage the viewers to have a meaningful conversation about the themes, to read and research more about the Holocaust and stories of survivors.
Her Grandma passed away while Chen was reworking the script, fueling even more the will to bring this story about a grandmother and a granddaughter (a relationship you don't see at the center of many stories) to life.
