On Thursday, April 5th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, the Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, RBG.
At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon.
Ginsburg’s vigorous dissenting opinions and ferocious 20-push-up workouts have earned this tiny, soft-spoken intellectual giant the status of rock star and the title “Notorious RBG.” What many don’t know is Ginsburg’s strategic, trailblazing role in defining gender-discrimination law. Intent on systematically releasing women from second-class status, she argued six pivotal gender-bias cases in the 1970s before an all-male Supreme Court blind to sexism.
Through intimate interviews and unprecedented access to Ginsburg’s life outside the court, RBG tells the inspiring story of Ginsburg’s consuming love affairs with both the Constitution and her beloved husband Marty - and of a life’s work that led her to become an icon of justice in the highest court in the land.
RBG world premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim.
“Excellent…fiery…a fitting tribute to an American legend. Regardless of your political ideology, you’ll come away with a newfound respect for this tireless pioneer of gender equality.“ Nonfics
“In Betsy West and Julie Cohen’s wide-ranging RBG, Ginsburg’s life - and its many lessons, both learned and taught - come to entertaining and energetic life. It’s a fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that makes one heck of a play to remind people of Ginsburg’s vitality and importance.” Indiewire
“An unabashed celebration of one of the most popular and influential lawyers and jurists in American history. When you look at the cases Ginsburg argued and won in front of the Supreme Court, a court that was all men at the time, those victories helped reshape America and struck down laws supporting gender inequality. RBG serves as a loving tribute to her life and career.” Collider
