The Montclair Film Festival Podcast host Todd Sokolove speaks with Lacey Schwartz, director of the critically acclaimed new documentary LITTLE WHITE LIE.  


The film was the centerpiece of the MFF Black History celebration this past February, where it played to a packed house.



Independent Lens - Monday, March 23rd

Also available soon on iTunes and Netflix.


Little White Lie tells Lacey Schwartz’s story of growing up in a typical upper-middle-class Jewish household in Woodstock, NY, with loving parents and a strong sense of her Jewish identity — despite the open questions from those around her about how a white girl could have such dark skin.

She believes her family’s explanation that her looks were inherited from her dark-skinned Sicilian grandfather. But when her parents abruptly split, her gut starts to tell her something different.
