The documentary film, Little White Lie, will be showing tonight at the Princeton Public Library! See you there?
Filmmaker Lacey Schwartz grew up believing her family’s explanation that her appearance was inherited from her dark-skinned Sicilian grandfather. At 18, she learned the truth that her biological father was African-American. In this film, Lacey strives to reconcile her newfound heritage with her Jewish upbringing and discovers that in order to define herself, she must first come to terms with her parents’ choices and how much she is willing to let their past affect her future. Schwartz will attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A session. Part of the Summer Documentary series. 1 hour, 24 minutes.
