By relying on Ginsburg’s own words and actions, as illuminated by carefully culled archival footage and interviews, Academy Award®winning filmmaker Freida Lee Mock covers the full breadth of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life, views and career. Furthermore, Mock succeeds in creating a compelling portrait as authentic, poignant and powerful as the Justice herself. Discussion with Freida Lee Mock hosted by Honolulu Civil Beat to follow film.
