‘Margaret Singer: Seeking Light’ debuts at SBIFF

Margaret Singers Seeking Light SBIFF

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - One of the films to debut at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival highlights the life and art of Margaret Singer. Singer was a Santa Barbara resident who's vibrant love for life and art was shaped by her experience as a Holocaust refugee.

Margaret Singer: Seeking Light hit the Arlington Theater screen Sunday. The short film is directed and produced by two Santa Barbara residents, Louise Palanker and Jennie Reinish. They joined our team Monday morning on FOX11 to talk about the film and Margaret's everlasting impact.

Margaret Singer was born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany, and at the age of 17, tragedy and turbulence flung her far from her roots. With courage and purpose, she bent darkness into light utilizing her gifts as an artist and a poet and her innate sense of truth and joy. Following her own compass, Margaret broke every mold of expectation for a woman, an immigrant and a refugee. She has created a body of work that will inspire generations.
