What’s the price of being a bystander? Sidney Bloch is an internationally recognized professor of psychiatry, ethicist, loving father, singer and author. He is also a man with a troubled conscience. In this film, Sid returns to South Africa for his medical school reunion, determined to resolve the guilt that has troubled him for 40 years. He is accompanied by his teenage son, Aaron, who turns out to be his harshest critic. South African-born documentarian Rod Freedman (Uncle Chatzkel, NYJFF 2001) returns with another smart and sensitive film.
Rod Freedman, director, will be in attendance.
