Special Guest: Eli Adler, Director

Eli Adler’s deeply personal film follows the path of his father, a Polish immigrant and survivor who built a life in Skokie, Illinois. But the quiet existence of hundreds of survivors is rocked to its core in the late ’70s when a neo-Nazi group announces plans to march through town.

As the community unites to confront these hate mongers, long-festering emotional scars and painful memories are uncovered. Adler uses historical footage and a penetrating first-person perspective to capture the intimate psychological details of 70 years of persecution and prejudice.
