Dir. Ryan White | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2018 | 1 hr. 40 min.

Discussion to follow with film subject Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and director Ryan White, moderated by Patricia Wallace, M.S.W.

Don’t let her small stature fool you. Although under five feet tall, Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a force. At 91 years old, this pioneer of sex therapy hasn’t stopped working—and still promises the best sex you’ve ever had, if you listen to her. Exuberant and infectiously energetic, she hopscotches from speaking engagements to TV and radio appearances. This inspiring portrait, colored by her almost arresting openness, spans from her childhood as an orphan of the Holocaust to her emergence from the darkness, bringing light to so many people.
