Cycle of Memory Screening at Bryn Mawr Film Institute
Join us for a special bike-centric screening and Q&A, featuring director (and Cheltenham native) Alex Leff.
In 1945, Mel Schwartz went on a life-changing bicycle adventure that would become one of his most cherished experiences—until Alzheimer’s began to take his memories. Guided by photographs from his trip, his two grandsons set off to retrace his journey—but must confront their own fraught history along the way. Weaving together new footage with archival family videos, this documentary is a poignant story of memory, healing, and connection.
