BJFF Midfest Event: “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story”

Top Pick November 15, 2017 Brookline $32.00 - $36.00 0
Bombshell

Hedy Lamarr was called the most beautiful woman in the world, but she was so much more. From her early role in a pre-war erotic film to her invention of the cellular technology used in WiFi, Lamarr’s life was filled with excitement and intrigue. Rare recordings, interviews, and excerpts from Lamarr’s own diary expose how this secret genius with a scandalous past never received the respect she deserved — in film or in science. Narrated by Susan Sarandon, voiced by Diane Kruger.

MidFest Screening preceded by a performance of History at Play’s “Tinseltown Inventor: The Most Beautiful Woman in the World, Hedy Lamarr.” Followed by a conversation with Director Alexandra Dean and Judith Kalaora, moderated by Janice Page, film editor at The Boston Globe.

Join us for a Passholder Party at Hops ‘n Scotch after the Midfest screening.

Sponsored by Center Communites of Brookline, Hebrew SeniorLife Orchard Cove, Hebrew SeniorLife and Science on Screen.
