Ahead of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber by Bob Richman (US, 2009, 73 min.). For seven decades foreign correspondent and photojournalist Ruth Gruber didn’t just report the news…she made it! Born in 1911 to Russian Jewish immigrants, Gruber photographed the Soviet Arctic, escorted Holocaust refugees on a secret wartime mission, and reported from the Palestine-bound ship Exodus in 1947. "Ruth Gruber is remarkable... indefatigable... a riveting raconteur... an inspiration," New York Times. Discussion with executive producer Patti Kenner follows screening.
