Ruth Faith Finberg, a pocket-sized woman of immense determination, adopted the less Jewish-sounding name of Finley after moving to New York in the 1930s, and since then has become a queen in the fashion industry. As a young mother, Ruth created the iconic pink Fashion Calendar, a publication that continues to organize and marshal American fashion today. Featuring Bill Cunningham, Carolina Herrera, Nicole Miller, Diane von Furstenberg, and more, this joyous profile is a love letter to fashion and the extraordinary life of one remarkable woman.
Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Christian D. Bruun, writer/producer Natalie Nudell, associate producer/Fashion Calendar employee Mary Myers Hackley, and moderator Rabbi Laila Haas. To view the conversation please click here.
