Ahead of Time is a documentary film celebrating the life of 99-year old Ruth Gruber, a journalist, writer, witness, and participant in the making of 20th century history. Born in 1911, Gruber was the youngest person in the world to receive a PhD when she was 20 years old. Gruber was a feminist before feminism. While at school in Cologne, she witnessed, and documented the rise of Nazism. A trail-blazer who rejected the gender standards of her generation, she became a journalist when she was 24 years old, traveling to the Arctic in 1935, the first Western reporter to visit the Soviet Arctic. She traveled to Alaska in 1942 on a fact finding mission for the Roosevelt administration. Her involvement in the events of WWII gave Ruth Gruber a unique perspective on the most defining events of the 20th century. In Ahead of Time Ruth Gruber shares her perspectives on the news she reported and made, interwoven with archival footage of these defining moments. (Photos from 1940s Fairbanks included!)
Ahead of Time, in addition to opening Women’s History Month, 2011 at UAF, is the 8th of 9 films featured in the 13th Annual Farthest North Jewish Film Festival this year.
