The Maryland Premiere of the final masterpiece by playwright William Gibson (The Miracle Worker), charts the rise of Golda Meir from Russian schoolgirl to Prime Minister of Israel in one of the most thrilling and amazing stories of the twentieth century. Acclaimed actress Tovah Feldshuh recreates 100 years of Jewish history playing 45 different characters, including Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Holocaust survivors, Israeli soldiers, and of course, Golda Meir herself, in this award-winning film that captures the experience of Feldshu's brilliant Tony-nominated performance from the longest running one-woman show in Broadway history.

Winner of 20 Audience Favorite Awards at all twenty of its competitive festivals to date, including Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Tel Aviv, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Northern Virginia, and others.

Please join us in the lobby at 6:00pm for a reception to celebrate the opening of the 32nd Annual William and Irene Weinberg Family Baltimore Jewish Film Festival. Opening night reception sponsored by Baltimore Israel Coalition.
