In this interview, Alex discusses the documentary,” Cycle of Memory “which won “Best of The Festival at the Sunset LA Film Festival in 2022.  How he recreated his grandpa’s journey from Brooklyn, N.Y to Philadelphia, PA, and Grandpa Mel’s friend, George accompanied him on the trip, and watching George and Mel in the film is heart-touching!
