Ellen Weisbrod & Melissa Powell, A Woman Like That



Ellen Weisbrod and Melissa Powell, director and producer of the Film, A Woman Like That, stop by the Clocktower to tell the story of their feature-length documentary. The film follows the life of the renaissance artist Artemesia Gentilesschi, but it does more than that. In researching and talking about Artemesia, director Weisbrod, who also narrates and appears in the film, finds a source of inspiration and strength in the paintings of this painter who had been often misunderstood. In the telling of the story she gathers together art historians and art lovers who have been touched by a woman who succeeded against many obstacles in a time when women were not supposed to be painters to begin with, and certainly not supposed to paint the way Artemesia did. (31 minutes)
