2022 · d. Alex Leff, Koby Leff
In 1945, Mel Schwartz went on a life-changing bicycle adventure that would become one of his most cherished experiences—until Alzheimer’s began to take his memories. Guided by photographs from his trip, his two grandsons set off to retrace his journey—but must confront their own fraught history along the way. Weaving together new footage with archival family videos, Cheltenham native Alex Leff’s documentary is a poignant story of memory, healing, and connection.
Director Alex Leff will join us for a post-film conversation.
