Award-winning filmmaker Marlene Booth will present a talk entitled “Tell Me a Story: Making and Learning From Documentary Films” on Tuesday, March 22nd. Born and raised in Des Moines, Booth looks back – with clips from her films - on 35 years of filmmaking as a woman, a feminist, and a dyed-in-the-wool Hawkeye.
