Bay Area Filmmaker Connie Field’s landmark documentary on the wartime experiences of women workers,THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ROSIE THE RIVETER, will be presented Friday, March 2 at 7:00 by the Sonoma Film Institute. Connie Field will be present to introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.

 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
