Worth the Wait, Must Watch

 The documentary focuses on the life of renowned Texan journalist, Molly Ivins, known for her sharp political commentaries at a time when the female voice was overwhelmingly dominated in a patriarchal society.

Engel, who both directed and produced the film, described to Art U News her experience of creating the film as “a labor of love and passion.”

A Q&A will be conducted after the screening of the film. Admission is free to the Art U community. See you there!
