Legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg (1886-1970), an American born son of German Jewish immigrant parents, was one of the great cultural icons and storytellers of the 20th Century. His drawings of unwieldy fantasy inventions became a fixture of American popular entertainment, and cemented his reputation as one of the most influential satirists of The Machine Age. In “The Two Lives of Rube Goldberg,” director Geoffrey George (Goldberg’s youngest grandchild,) explores Rube’s life, as well as the influence of his legacy, which inspires new generations of creative thinkers today.
