Documentary on Ruth Gruber: “Ahead of Time”

14 September 2010
Ruth Gruber (who celebrates her 99th birthday this month) is the subject of a new documentary, Ahead of Time, about her amazing journey. Director Bob Richman (a documentary cinematographer whose work includes The September Issue and An Inconvenient Truth) had so much story to tell with Ms Gruber’s life that, to “avoid making a four-hour movie, he ended the past-tense part of ‘Ahead of Time’ in 1947, [when] Ms. Gruber was 36. ‘It’s not really a life story,’ Mr. Richman said, ‘I left out 50 years.'”
