and Irenka Taurek.

7 – 9 pm

Cedar Rapids

At the onset of World War II George Landau and Irenka Taurek.and their parents were taken from their homes in Poland and sent to Siberia. When finally released by the Soviets, they ended up undocumented immigrants in Uzbekistan and later in the United States. Both grew up to lead exemplary lives, remaining grateful for the simple pleasures in life, for enough food to eat, for shelter. The film includes original art and animation and narration taken from a book by George’s father.

George Landau is the nephew of long time Cedar Rapids doctor, David Thaler. George spent many happy summers in Cedar Rapids during his high school years, visiting the home of David and Joan Thaler. The film was produced, directed and illustrated by David Thaler’s step-daughter, Nancy Margulies.

There will be multiple showings of Lies & Miracles in Cedar Rapids. Nancy and George will attend each showing and will answer questions afterwards.

The film offers a balanced view of challenging times responded to with grace and gratitude. Its message is especially meaningful in light of current events.

“A story of courage and strength while facing seemingly impossible odds. Artistic in both visuals and music, a portrait of survival and gratitude.”

“The film offers a balanced view of challenging times responded to with grace and gratitude. Its message is especially meaningful in light of current events.”
— Half Moon Bay Review
