Cinema Akil kicks off its January programming with one of the most critically-acclaimed feature documentaries of 2018, a Sundance Film Festival premiere that has received nine winning awards and 26 nominations worldwide. ‘RBG’ is Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second female justice to be confirmed to the US Supreme Court; the film documents her life and career (which spans several decades) and how she developed a legal legacy while becoming a pop culture icon. The New York Times review said: “The movie’s touch is light and its spirit buoyant, but there is no mistaking its seriousness or its passion. Those qualities resonate powerfully in the dissents that may prove to be Justice Ginsburg’s most enduring legacy …” In rep to 17 January.
