Saturday, February 2nd at 8 PM
3rd Floor Conference Room in The Foundry Community (211 N 14th)
This screening is free & open to the public.

Love, Gilda is a documentary about the life of Gilda Radner. Told with pictures, video and diary entries recently released. It is primarily narrated by many of her friends and the comediennes that she inspired with her talent, her caring and most of all her love. Gilda died of Ovarian Cancer on May 20, 1989, but her legacy lives on. She was the first person to be cast for the new late night TV show, “Saturday Night Live” and she helped shape that through its first 5 years. The show has been continuously broadcasting for 43 years.

As always, popcorn will be provided. Feel free to bring drinks and snacks to enjoy and maybe share.

‘I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.’
-Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg quoting Sarah Grimké

This 2018 biographical documentary is about the diminutive Supreme Court Justice from Brooklyn who has in the last decade become a hero and icon for the feminist and LGBT community. Including many of her own words and interviews, testimony before congress and interviews with her friends, family and co-workers, this film fills in the story of her rise through the system and the truly extraordinary changes to our society that she helped bring about. Indeed, the thing that struck me the most about her career, it seems to me the most important contributions she made early on were the cases she won. In the later part, after being appointed to the Supreme Court, her dissents have had the most impact. Come and see what you think. Also learn what Ruth the person is like, as opposed to Ruth the Judge.

As always, popcorn will be provided, feel free to bring drinks and snacks to enjoy and maybe share. The movie will be shown in the Conference Room on the 3rd floor of the Foundry.
