The Sigi Ziering Institute presents
A special screening of
THE MEMORY THIEF
What if your past belongs to someone else…?
THE MEMORY THIEF is the story of Lukas – an aimless, young man in contemporary L.A. who buries thoughts of his own past in the humdrum routine of a tollbooth clerk.
A chance encounter with a Holocaust survivor suddenly brings into focus a world and an identity he embraces with frightening intensity – the victimized Jews of World War II. As he begins to enthusiastically act out his newfound obsession, Lukas, a non-Jew, discovers that survivor’s guilt isn’t just for the Jews anymore.
THE MEMORY THIEF, starring Mark Webber, is a mesmerizing, audacious psychological thriller in the tradition of TAXI DRIVER.
