Dennis emigrated to the United States in 1980 settling in Los Angeles.

In 2017, Dennis was instrumental in curating an exhibition of his mother’s artwork which was held at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. Her work which was heavily influenced by her German roots and emigration and life in South Africa during the years of apartheid, had a profound impact on her art. This is a short documentary film that he made about her life, her work, and her philosophy.
