If you will be in New York this coming Sunday, Aug 30, 2009 at 2:30 PM EDT, be sure to visit the museum for a special screening of "Tickling Leo" followed by a Q&A with the writer/director, producer and some of the main actors.
This contemporary drama follows three generations of a Jewish family whose secrets threaten to destroy its future. After losing touch with his father, Zak Pikler and his pregnant girlfriend Delphina travel to visit him in the Catskills where he lives in solitude and declining health. As Zak copes with his father's dementia, Delphina uncovers a family secret the Piklers have kept hidden since World War II: a sacrifice they made to join Rudolph Kasztner's controversial train out of Hungary.
