Women Who Brew: Breaking the Glass Ceiling for the Love of Beer

A free screening of Women Who Brew: Breaking the Glass Ceiling for the Love of Beer will be shown on the 30th and is presented by the Marriott Library Eclectic Film Committee. From both a marketing and a career-development perspective, the world of beer and brewing has long been male-dominated. Ads for major beer companies generally target men, and in the rapidly growing craft beer and ale industry, men own and operate the majority of breweries. But the latter situation is changing. This program follows a large number of women who have found success and fulfillment as brewery owners, pub owners, hops farmers, home-based and large-scale beer artisans, and other positions in the industry. Focusing on the Pacific Northwest’s burgeoning craft beer market, the film introduces thriving entrepreneurs and highly valued employees who have defied the assumption that beer is just for men. Award-winning brewmaster Tonya Cornett, celebrated publican Sarah Pederson, respected hops producer Gayle Goschie, and craft brewery pioneer and Pink Boots Society founder Teri Fahrendorf are among the many industry luminaries featured.

Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge at the Young Vic Theatre) returns to National Theatre Live screens with a modern production of Ibsen’s masterpiece.

Family Art Saturday: Stop and Go

Can moving images represent the real world? Justin Chouinard creates media sculptures, performances, and motion image artworks inspired by the limitations of film.

Creativity in Focus Film Series: Because I was a Painter

When the Allies liberated the concentration camps in 1945 they discovered thousands of secretly created artworks. These drawings, hidden from the Nazis, offer an unparalleled view of life during the war. For more than seventy years the story of the artists who created them has remained untold. With unprecedented access to paintings, drawings, etchings, and sculptures held in collections around the world the film conducts a gripping and fascinating investigation into art that captures, reflects, and inspires in difficult times.
