The Last Happy Day is an experimental documentary on Sandor Lenard, a distant cousin of director Lynne Sachs. Lenard was a doctor and writer with a Jewish background who fled the Nazis during WWII. During the war, the US Army hired Lenard to reconstruct the bones of dead American soldiers. Eventually he found himself in Brazil where he embarked on the translation of “Winnie the Pooh” into Latin, an eccentric task which catapulted him to brief world-wide fame. Sachs’ film, which resonates as an anti-war meditation, uses letters, abstracted war imagery, home movies, and interviews.The
