AJFF FILM: Ahead of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber – Fri. Nov. 16th, 3:30PM, Museum of Natural History

“I am experiencing that feeling of zest which goes with exploration. I am in the thick of a historic moment. I am in an era in the making…” —First lines of Ruth Gruber’s initial dispatch from the Soviet Arctic, 1935 For seven decades foreign correspondent and photojournalist Ruth Gruber didn’t just report the news…she made it! Born in 1911 to Russian Jewish immigrants, she became the youngest Ph.D. in the world before going on to become an international foreign correspondent and photojournalist at age 24. Gruber reported from the Soviet Arctic, escorted Holocaust refugees on a secret war-time mission, and changed the world with dispatches from the Palestine-bound ship Exodus in 1947. With her love of adventure, fearlessness and powerful intellect, Ruth defied tradition and emerged as the eyes and conscience of the world during her extraordinary career. Through her own words and images, the film follows Ruth Gruber’s incredible journey as a student, a reporter, an activist leader and a prolific author. Guest Speaker: Adrian Fish
