Join JCC Association for this JFest film event about legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg (1886-1970), an American born son of German Jewish immigrant parents. Goldberg was one of the great cultural icons and storytellers of the 20th Century. His drawings of unwieldy fantasy inventions became a fixture of American popular entertainment and cemented his reputation as one of the most influential satirists of The Machine Age. In “The Two Lives of Rube Goldberg,” director Geoffrey George (Goldberg’s youngest grandchild,) explores Rube’s life, as well as the influence of his legacy, which inspires unexpected journeys and new generations of creative thinkers today. 

All programs and events for JFest: An Arts Festival for the JCC Movement are made possible through funds granted by The Covenant Foundation, with additional support from The Pertzik Fund for Arts and Culture.
