Opening Night Film: Dear Sirs

Directed by Mark Pedri

Filmmaker Mark Pedri had never heard his grandfather Silvio’s story despite spending nearly every day together for 10 years. It wasn’t until after Silvio’s death that Mark found an archive of old photos, letters, and documents detailing Silvio’s journey as a Prisoner of War (POW) in World War II. The discovery inspired Mark to bike over 500 miles across Europe, following the original Prisoner of War transportation routes, in an effort to tell his grandfather’s story and better understand the man who helped raise him.

This film contains difficult subject matter and imagery including depictions of war. Viewer discretion advised.

Director Mark Pedri and producer Carrie McCarthy will be in attendance. Dessert reception follows film presentation and discussion and is included in ticket purchase.
