Screening and Q&A of 'On My Way Out: The Secret Life of Nani & Popi'

Screening followed by a Q&A with Sklyer Gross (Director),
Howie Mandel (Executive Producer) and Lili Blank Gross (Producer/Cast)

Currently an official selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, ON MY WAY OUT tells the love story of Skyler & Brandon’s grandparents, who after 60 years of what appeared to be the model marriage, revealed that they had been keeping a huge secret from their entire family. As Holocaust survivors who tragically lost family members, their lives had been filled with darkness. But somehow, their remarkable spirits allowed them to persevere and “succeed” in America. Ultimately, ON MY WAY OUT connects with the core values of what makes us human beings, the need and desire to love and be loved.

Skyler Gross, producer Lili Gross and executive producer Howie Mandel will be in attendance for both the screening and a post-screening Q&A.  There will be a reception in the lower level lobby following the Q&A.
