Oscar-Qualifying ‘Little White Lie’ Spreads

21 Nov


Lacey Schwartz, National Outreach Director / New York Regional Director for Be’Chol Lashon, an organization committed to raising awareness of the global diversity of Judaism, has just released her film ‘Little White Lie‘ to broader theaters after many successful festival appearances. The documentary tells Lacey’s own story of growing up in a typical upper-middle-class Jewish household in Woodstock, NY, with loving parents and 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. She believes her family’s explanation that her looks were inherited from her dark-skinned Sicilian grandfather. But when her parents abruptly split, her gut starts to tell her something different, leading to a startling discovery that changes everything.

In the tradition of ‘Capturing the Friedmans‘ and ‘Stories We Tell‘, ‘Little White Lie‘ is a true life story with twists and betrayals that grabs you and doesn’t let go.

Beginning today, the film is rolling out to select theaters for week-long runs in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, DC. Click here for further details and additional screenings. See the trailer below.
