Get Reel with Hollywood Director

Former Mayor of Tempe and activist Neil Guiliano will interview Hollywood Director Bryan Singer at the Chandler Center for the Arts, January 14. The event, which takes place at 7:00 p.m., will raise funds for the new Holocaust & Tolerance Museum currently being constructed in Chandler, of which both Guiliano and Singer are proponents.

“I am proud to support the museum’s success,” quotes Singer, who not only serves as an executive producer for House and Dirty Sexy Money but who directed several films relating to the Holocaust such as Apt Pupil and Valkyrie, as well as blockbusters such as The Usual Suspects, X-Men and X-2: X-Men United. “You don’t tell stories like Valkyrie or Apt Pupil without it impacting you in a very personal way. It’s critically important for us to honor Holocaust victims and survivors and the unimaginable experiences they endured. It is only by remembering that we can strive to prevent anything like that to happen again.”

Guiliano remarks that “it’s a special opportunity to be able to interview a huge talent like Bryan Singer, but even more important to be involved with a project like the Holocaust & Tolerance museum. Arizona doesn’t have anything like this museum, which will use the lessons of the Holocaust to ensure a world without hate.”

The Chandler Holocaust & Tolerance museum, which will educate the public about the importance of diversity and to combat prejudice at a community and global level, will be one of only five such museums in the country. The museum is a project of the East Valley Jewish Community Center.
