At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Julie Cohen and Betsy West, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

Starring: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane and James Ginsburg, Clara Spera, Gloria Steinem, Nina Totenberg, Lilly Ledbetter, Sharron Frontiero and Stephen Wiesenfeld, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, Bill Clinton, Ted Olson, Judge Harry Edwards, Senator Orrin Hatch, Eugene Scalia and Bryant Johnson 

Julie Cohen is a documentary filmmaker and the founder of BetterThanFiction Productions, Inc. She has directed, produced, and written ten documentaries for WNET, NY and other PBS stations around the country; more than 20 hour-long and two-hour programs for Dateline NBC; and web content for a wide variety of corporate and non-profit clients. Her films have screened at more than 80 festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival. Julie has won three New York Emmy Awards since 2012 and the Individual Achievement Award for Best News Producer from American Women in Radio and Television. A former longtime NBC News staff producer, Julie still does consulting projects for NBC. She graduated from Colgate and holds masters degrees from Yale Law School and the Columbia Journalism School, where she is now an adjunct professor.  (Julie's parents, George and Phyllis Cohen, are both lifetime CCW Members.)
