GRACE PALEY: Collected Shorts
This documentary about the author and activist Grace Paley is a joy for her fans and is a must see for those who don't yet know of her genius. Director Lilly Rivlin IN PERSON !

Grace Paley: Collected Shorts brings to life the momentous times in which this author and activist lived and worked as she reads from her short stories, poems and essays. She often referred to herself as a "combative pacifist". This small, feisty woman spoke with the rough-around-the-edges accent of the Bronx neighborhood where she grew up.
She was the child of Jewish immigrants who fled oppression in Russia. They instilled in Grace a lifelong commitment to fighting social and political injustice. She was jailed many times for protesting war and the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Her work combines the personal with the political befitting a woman whose private views on world events led her to take public action.
As a master of the short story, she has been compared to Chekhov and her bestselling work Enormous Changes at the Last Minute brought her international fame. This documentary traces the life of this ordinary woman with an extraordinary talent for poetry and prose through her own stories and the stories of her family, friends, colleagues and critics. USA, 2010, 84 min., color | Director: Lilly Rivlin
