B'nai Reel Time - A Discussion Group: Little White Lie

Saturday, January 2, 2021 18 Tevet 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PMVirtual Program: Zoom access will be provided upon registration

With the weather turning cooler and Covid restrictions keeping many of us at home, we are pleased to introduce our film discussion group, B’nai Reel Time.

It's simple: We'll select a film, give you a couple of weeks to view it, and then we'll virtually come together to discuss it. We've selected the first film to get the ball rolling. If there is interest, we'll seek input for future movies and offer a facilitated movie discussion group monthly through April.




Little White Lie, a film by Lacey Schwartz, is about “family secrets, denial, dual identity, and the power of telling the truth.”  Little White Lie tells Lacey Schwartz’s story of growing up in a typical upper-middle-class Jewish household in New York, with a strong sense of her Jewish identity—despite the open questions from those around her about how a white girl could have such dark skin. Lacey does not learn until she is a young woman that her biological father was a black man with whom her mother had an affair.  Lacey struggles to come to terms with her upbringing and identity.  66 minutes, English, 2014.  Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxHLpgYwcVY.
