Dirs. Betsy West & Julie Cohen – Documentary Premieres (World Premiere)

Marking her 25th year on the U.S. Supreme Court, RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s exceptional life and career. At the age of 84, Justice Ginsburg has created a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But few know the unique personal journey of this diminutive warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court: as a young lawyer, Ginsburg was a legal architect of the modern women’s rights movement. Directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen develop a multidimensional portrait of the Justice through intimate interviews with family, friends, colleagues, and critics, along with vérité scenes, exclusive home movies, and archival news footage documenting her career. Justice Ginsburg’s speeches and writings are woven together with an extraordinary interview with the Justice herself, in which she discusses, in quietly profound terms, herupbringing, passions, and finding love with her husband, Marty, whom she credits with making herprofession possible.
