“TREASURE” Screening

Thu June 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
LAJFF in partnership with Laemmle Theatres presents a fascinating look at generational trauma in TREASURE, official selection at Tribeca FF.

A special screening.

An american journalist Ruth who travels to Poland with her father Edek to visit his childhood places. But Edek, a Holocaust survivor, resists reliving his trauma and sabotages the trip creating unintentionally funny situations.

Father and daughter reunite, reconcile and chart a course for Poland in what becomes a fascinating study of father-daughter relationships. Ruth (Lena Dunham), a neurotic businesswoman from New York, takes her father Edek (Stephen Fry), a charmingly stubborn Holocaust survivor, on a journey to his family home. While Ruth’s fascination with delving into the past provides roads to conquer her own demons, Edek's hesitation to confront his past is fueled by nightmares and a fear that persists beneath his brave facade.

Directed by Julia von Heinz and based on the best-selling autobiographical novel Too Many Men by Lily Brett, Fry and Dunham challenge each other to reach stunning heights as their characters unpack generational trauma and find solace in vices.
