A Woman Like That screening  
Wednesday, March 2nd, 3:00pm - 4:15pm
*Room changed to: Cohen Auditorium

Emmy-nominated filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod merges her own coming-of-middle-age story with her pursuit of the truth behind the myths of 17th century female artist Artemisia Gentileschi's dramatic work and provocative life. Weissbrod brings the audience into close contact with Gentileschi's paintings and words, filming in Italy at the Casa Buonarroti, the Museo di Capodimonte, The Pitti Palace, The Rome State Archives, and in private collectors' homes in Milan, Florence and Rome. A freewheeling tribute to an artist who leaps across centuries to speak to us all, the enduring power of storytelling - in paintings, in films and in our lives is revealed, as the filmmaker must overcome her own doubts and fears, travel the world and even go undercover to learn that who gets to tell the story matters, and that maybe she too, can be a woman like that.
