Director/actor Lucie Arnaz, the actor/singer daughter of the famous couple Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, will be on hand along with producer/actor Laurence Luckinbill and the film's Emmy and Ace Award-winning editor Sandra Consentino for a post-screening Q&A hosted by Emmy Award-winning journalists Ira Joe Fisher and Morton Dean.
