Ruth Gruber, an international foreign correspondent and photojournalist, became the eyes and conscience of the world during an extraordinary career that spanned more than seven decades. Gruber was the first journalist to enter the Soviet Arctic in 1935. She escorted Holocaust refugees to America in 1944, covered the Nuremberg trials in 1946, and documented the Haganah ship Exodus in 1947. This riveting documentary interweaves verité scenes with never-before-seen archival footage. The screening will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers.
