This event is sold out.

Directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen (USA, 2018, 97 min.). Digital. Sneak Preview.

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vigorously argued opinions have earned this tiny, soft-spoken intellectual giant rock-star status and the nickname “Notorious RBG.” RBG traces Ginsburg’s rich personal life and her barrier-busting career as a trailblazing lawyer, advocate, and judge. In the 1970s, she made legal history arguing gender-bias cases before the (all-male) Supreme Court. At 84—still inspired by the lawyers who defended free speech during the Red Scare—Ginsburg continues her tenacious defense of equal rights.

“A fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that reminds people of Ginsburg’s vitality and importance, now more than ever.”Indiewire

Followed by a Q&A with director Betsy West.

Note: this film has been moved to the Remis Auditorium.
