Acclaimed at its January debut at the Sundance Film Festival (under the watchful eye of its subject and star), this crowd-pleasing documentary about US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg casts light on her exceptional life and career. At the age of 85, Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But many observers don’t know about the unique personal path that this diminutive, quiet warrior pursued before she rose to the nation’s highest court. This entertaining, often humorous portrait of Ginsburg illuminates several key cases that she meticulously pursued in the interest of advancing gender equality. Producers/Directors: Betsy West, Julie Cohen. (US 2018) 97 min.

WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

Tue, Jul 17 3:45 PM (94 min)
For over 30 years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer, used his program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood to communicate with America’s children about some of life’s weightiest issues. This charming (and disarming) documentary by Oscar-winner Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom) reveals how the soft-spoken, cardigan-wearing TV host’s career represented a coherent view of how to speak to children about important matters and how to use television as a positive force. Neville’s film illustrates Rogers’ legacy with impressive clips as well as extensive interviews with family and associates. When it’s over, you’ll agree that there hasn’t been anyone like Mr. Rogers on television before or since. Producer/Director: Morgan Neville. (US 2018) 93 min.

FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF

Rafael Film Center
Tue, Jul 17 4:00 PM (75 min)
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park, projects that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space and, ultimately, beauty itself. In English and in Dutch with English subtitles. Camera/Producer/Director: Thomas Piper. (US/Netherlands 2017) 75 min.
