Leadership in Cinema - Ruth Gruber

I found a Leadership in Cinema nugget on fellow blogger Billy Schmidt's site. Showtime is currently airing Ahead of Time, a documentary about Ruth Gruber, the youngest person in the world to receive a PhD. The film documents Ruth's adventures as an international foreign correspondent and photojournalist.

Take a moment and view the extended Ahead of Time trailer found on the Reel Inheritance Films and Vitagraph website. Information about ordering the DVD is also available on this website.

Members of our Professional Reading Program may wish to read Gruber's book "Ahead of Time: My Early Years as a Foeign Coorespondent."

Leadership Challenges:

  • Adopt this documentary and develop a lesson plan for the Leadership in Cinema library.
  • Particpate in a virtual discussion about this movie on this blog.
