      EVENT DETAILS
      Jewish Women Movie Directors

      Dr. Lawrence Baron, professor emeritus of Modern Jewish History at California State University, San Diego, will offer a lecture on Jewish women directors. Although Jewish women have always been part of making American films as actresses and screenwriters, their entry into the ranks of directors was belated. A number of notable Jewish female directors emerged on the Hollywood scene in the 1970s who brought both a Jewish and feminist perspective to their films. This lecture will profile these pioneers from Elaine May, Joan Micklin-Silver, Claudia Weil to Lee Grant, and Barbra Streisand.
