A dark comedy about a high-end design firm rebranding the gift shop at The Anne Frank House
Winner of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival’s Film Movement Award for Best Narrative Short!
Is there a wrong way to talk about the Holocaust? That’s the question at the heart of “The Anne Frank Gift Shop,” a dark comedy short about antisemitism that packs a vital and timely message that you can watch in full for a limited time online on GQ. When a high-end design firm presents its plans to reimagine the gift shop at The Anne Frank House, the company’s overt appeal to Generation Z sparks a debate about collective trauma, the Holocaust—and tote bags. Rapkin, whose best selling book was the basis for the Pitch Perfect film and television franchise, partnered with Reboot Studios, which funded the project as a part of its inaugural class of studio investments in 2022.
