Mrs. G and Kosher Beach at the Boston Jewish Film Festival

JWA is proud to sponsor a screening of Mrs. G, preceded by the short film Kosher Beach, as part of the Boston Jewish Film Festival. Mrs. G tells the incredible story of how one woman created the world’s most famous swimsuit company. Mrs. Lea Gottlieb started Gottex in her tiny Tel Aviv apartment. A Holocaust survivor with endless creativity, unbridled passion, and a dominant personality, "Mrs. G" was able to climb to the pinnacle of the glamorous fashion world. But ultimately, this success meant navigating complex relationships with her two daughters and making complicated personal decisions while trying to keep her business afloat. The screening will be followed by a conversation with fashion historian Keren Ben-Horin.
