Crossroads: a one-hour film by Emmy Award-winning Filmmakers Mike Leonard and Mary Kay Wall Produced by Picture Show Films, Chicago

Crossroads will be shown on Saturday, October 27, 2018. Time and room to be determined.

Where do we belong? Where is home? Mike Leonard returns to Ireland and Paterson, New Jersey to revisit his grandfather’s life and immigration to America in 1900.

The film explores the crossroads, circuitous paths and consequences that launch our lives, and play out long after we’re gone.

How could a teenage Tom Leonard, working in an Irish farm field, ever imagine that by leaving home he would enable his grandson to find work in a field called
television?

It is every American’s story. Whatever our lot, those born in a safe place can only imagine what it IS and what it WAS to have to leave all you have known. And all our lives are richer for the cross-pollination of the struggles and cultures from which we come.

The Ride of Our Lives: will be shown on Saturday, October 27, 2018. Time and room to be determined.
Mike will show various parts of his documentary, The Ride of Our Lives, featuring his journey across America with his aging parents and wife and children in an R.V. Stay tuned for fun and laughter.
