All screenings are in Warren Auditorium, Ives Hall, on the Sonoma State University campus in Rohnert Park. Suggested ticket donation is $5.00. There is a $5.00 parking fee on all Sonoma State University lots.
Juxtaposing old photographs and newsreel footage with reminiscences of five former Rosies, THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ROSIE THE RIVETER forms a bittersweet statement about American attitudes and hypocritical doctrines.
“These were no tap-dancing girls swaying rhythmically at Lockheed, as Hollywood imaged them, but earnest individuals who had their dreams of economic survival, who really did praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.” - Albert Johnson
“Warm, engaging and poignant. The film has that Studs Terkel-like ability to discover the extraordinary in seemingly ordinary people. Terrific.” The Los Angeles Times
