Lies My Father Told Me



Lies My Father Told Me
Ján Kádar | Canada | 1975 | 104mm
U.S. Premiere of Restored Version
Join us to revisit this classic film based on a story by Ted Allan and set in the 1920s Montreal Jewish immigrant community. Six-year-old David lives with his Canadian-born parents, his grandfather—a junk peddler who emigrated from Russia—and their aging horse. A clash is inevitable with David’s father, a modern materialistic man who dreams of striking it rich with his inventions. Still, young David loves nothing more than making the rounds with his grandfather calling out for “rags, clothes, bottles.”
Harry Gulkin, producer, and Marilyn Lightstone, actress, will be in attendance.
