RBG

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. The film captures Ginsburg’s determination as she goes from being a brilliant legal scholar shunned by law firms because of her gender to a masterful appellate litigator who advanced women’s rights by arguing and winning several key cases before the nine men on the Supreme Court in the 1970s, and then finally to her role as a member of the Court.

Join MALA and the Center for Jewish History for a special screening and panel discussion of this critically acclaimed award-winning documentary. We will be joined by two of RBG’s filmmakers, Associate Producer Nadine Natour and Director/Producer Julie Cohen for an in- depth conversation on their journeys in chronicling the life and career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
