Westport student Brian Mayer, 17, (c), is congratulated by his grandfather, Seymour (l), and father, Jeffrey (r), following the premiere of Brian’s documentary film “Full Circle” today at the Westport Historical Society. The film traces the story of Seymour Mayer from his boyhood in Transylvania, Romania, to his liberation from a slave labor camp in Austria. Brian Mayer filmed his grandfather as the family traveled together in 2003 to the Holocaust survivor’s hometown for the first time in 57 years. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Emily Laux for WestportNow.com
