Dostalek’s 18-minute  documentary “Never forget – a March of the Living Story” is a cinematic journey set for its premier screening later this year following its maker’s visit to Poland and Israel made by the filmmaker when on the 2014 MOTL.

25-yr-old Dostalek told J-Wire that he was encouraged to experience March of the Living by a friend of his mother’s. Although he went to Moriah College Primary, Dostalek spent his secondary school years at Scots College. “I wanted to go on March of the Living when I was at school, but it did not happen. So this year I went on the Young Adult Program. My plan is for the documentary to be screened to communities around the world and to inspire other to join one of the three programs one being for school students, one for young adults and the third for the mainstream community.”

Dostalek lives in Vaucluse close to the Anthony Salamon, the film’s producer with whom he works closely on the project.

The music has been composed by Ben Goldstein of Bondi who shot to fame through the popular TV program “The Voice” and whose music videos were shot by Dostalek. Goldstein has penned a song especially for the documentary.

Dostalek added: “My main goal in to encourage 19 to 35-yr-olds to experience the March of the Living while there are still survivors of the Holocaust amongst us. It was an especially moving time for me as no members of my family were directly involved in the Holocaust.”

Australian March of the Living organiser Cedric Geffen said: “I take my hat off to them. Adam and Anthony are truly motivated by the March and I know this documentary has  demanded a lot of time, a lot effort and a lot of money. Although the film has been made in collaboration with me, I am sure it will be an invaluable asset to communities across the globe.”

Adam Dostalek, taking time out from making commercials and music videos told J-Wire that funds are still needed to complete the project.

“Anything over $100 is fully tax deductible and we would appreciate every cent.”
