Rey Documentary Featured at NH Jewish Film Fest

March 17, 2018

There are two excellent articles about Margret and Hans Rey in New Hampshire publications this week (click on links below), and both focus on the Rey’s Waterville Valley connection.

The Reys created that mischievous little monkey, Curious George, that has been a childhood favorite for decades.  The Reys were Waterville Valley summer residents and their former house is now known as the Curious George Cottage and is home to the nonprofit Margret and H.A. Rey Center.  

Producer and director Ema Yamazaki’s documentary about the Reys, Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators, will be featured at the New Hampshire Jewish Film Festival beginning this Sunday.  If you missed seeing the film here in Waterville Valley, you can catch a screening in Concord at the Red River Theater on Sunday, March 25, at 5:30 p.m.  Some of the Waterville Valley “kids” that grew up with the Reys will be in attendance.
