Free Screening of “Ethel” followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Rory Kennedy

Presented by The University of South Florida
Thursday, Nov. 8 at 6:30 p.m.
(Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)

Rory Kennedy, daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy and Emmy-winning independent documentary filmmaker, will conduct a Q&A session after the showing of her newest film, “Ethel”, which offers a personal look inside the life and political dynasty of the Kennedy family.

The newest documentary about her mother focuses on the remarkable life of Ethel, the politically active wife of RFK, and the single mother who raised Rory and her 10 older siblings.

Intertwining famous footage of world events, such as the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam war and the anti-war movement, and assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, with the Kennedy’s rare home movies and personal photos, the film follows Ethel from birth to her marriage to husband Robert, to her political awakening, to Ethel in present day. The documentary provides a personal portrait of the Kennedy matriarch through interviews and personal accounts from Ethel’s close friends and family.
