LGBT Film Series Presents "Ruthie and Connie: Every Room in the House"
Start Date: 10/3/2012Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 10/3/2012End Time: 7:00 PM
Event Description:
Kick-off LGBT History Month with CU's Departments of History, Ethnic Studies, and Women and Gender Studies as well as the Program in Jewish Studies, the LGBT Studies Program, and the LGBT Center for the first film in the LGBT series, "Ruthie and Connie: Every Room in the House."

"Ruthie and Connie" is a heart warming film about two Jewish lesbians who were very politically active, well before it was politically correct to do so.  The film engages domestic, political, cultural and even religious issues as they pursue first domestic partnership in New York and then years later, the fight to get married.

"Deborah Dickson’s touching and illuminating Ruthie and Connie, [is] a portrait of two feisty Jewish grandmothers who’ve been in a lesbian relationship for 25 years and recount their joys and hardships with inimitable zest.”

David Shneer, Louis P. Singer Chair in Jewish History, Director of CU's Program in Jewish Studies and Professor of History will lead a post-screening discussion. Shneer holds a PhD from the University of California Berkeley and has been called a "taboo-breaking scholar" by Tikkun magazine. Professor Shneer's work concentrates on modern Jewish society and culture, especially Yiddish culture, Russian Jewish history, and Jews and sexuality. This series is being offered in conjunction with a CU Boulder course Professor Shneer is teaching this semester titled Lesbian and Gay History: Culture, Politics and Social Change in the United States.
