From A Woman's Point of View

Zeva Oelbaum, producer of the film AHEAD OF TIME, will discuss this documentary of the remarkable Ruth Gruber. Born in Brooklyn to a Jewish family Gruber became the youngest ever PhD at age 20. Pursuing a career as an international foreign correspondent prior to and during the Second World War she faced both sexism and anti-Semitism and found herself in some of the principle historic moments of the time. The film is part of the Cinema Diaspora:International Perspectives on Jewish Identity which has partnered with the Sarasota Film Festival to have its films be a part of the festival. AHEAD OF TIME will be shown Saturday April 10th 2:15 and Sunday, April 11th at 2:00 pm. www.sarasotafilmfestival.com www.ruthgruberthemovie.com
