JIFF-Ask Dr. Ruth

No Free Tickets

Ask Dr. Ruth chronicles the incredible life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America’s most famous sex therapist. With her diminutive frame, thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, Dr. Ruth transformed the conversation around sexuality. At 91 years old, she hasn’t stopped working, and shows no signs of slowing down.
Filmmaker Ryan White captures Dr. Ruth’s exuberant personality as she skips from speaking engagements to TV and radio appearances. Alongside her optimism are storybook-like animations that bring Dr. Ruth’s childhood as an orphan of the Holocaust to life. The tragic loss of being separated from her parents and never seeing them again shaped how she would embrace the world. A critics’ darling the world over, Ask Dr Ruth is an inspiring and entertaining portrait of a trailblazer.
