About the Film:

Joel Katz’s personal memoir film grapples with what it means to be white in America. It tells an emotional multi-generational story about his family that encompasses immigration, assimilation, liberal idealism, bitter disillusionment, and ultimately reconciliation and an adoption that makes Katz’s family multi-racial. See Joel Katz’s work at www.onierafilms.com.
