[VIRTUAL] The Two Lives of Rube Goldberg - Screening/Talkback

Date: May 19, 2022
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg (1886-1970), an American-born son of German Jewish immigrant parents, was one of the great cultural icons and storytellers of the 20th Century. His drawings of unwieldy fantasy inventions became a fixture of American popular entertainment and cemented his reputation as one of the most influential satirists of The Machine Age. In “The Two Lives of Rube Goldberg,” director Geoffrey George (Rube Goldberg’s youngest grandchild,) explores Rube’s life, as well as the influence of his legacy, which inspires new generations of creative thinkers today.

The program will include a live chat feature with filmmaker Geoffrey George, and other special guests.

All programs and events for JFest: An Arts Festival for the JCC Movement are made possible through funds granted by The Covenant Foundation, with additional support from The Pertzik Fund for Arts and Culture.
