Women's Film Series | RBG
Oct 4, 2018 | 7pm
Our 4th Annual Women's Film Series will showcase movies made by women filmmakers. This year, the documentaries we've curated focus on trailblazing women.
At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG explores Ginsburg's life and career.
