Film: "Rachel: a Marked Woman"

Posted by Stephanie Carrillo on January 19, 2014

See the Director's Screening of "Rachel: a Marked Woman" at the Skirball Center, 8pm. Film is 34 min. followed by Q & A session with the director. Admission is $8.00 and parking is free.

An extraordinary story of a woman who fought back against the criminal rings that ensnared her and the society that shunned her. During the early twentieth century, thousands of Eastern European Jewish women were lured to Argentina with promises of marriage and opportunity, only to meet a sadder fate: a life of prostitution and degradation. Raquel: A Marked Woman is about a courageous woman who dared to escape.

Join director Gabriela Böhm for a Q&A and talk after the screening. Presented in association with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles. (USA/Argentina, 2013, 34 min. No MPAA rating. In English.)
