SUMMIT, NJ - The Film Society of Summit will host a screening of "Paris Was a Woman," a dazzling portrait of the creative community of women writers, artists, photographers and editors who flocked to Paris in the early decades of the 20th Century, when Paris was the undisputed cultural capital of the world. The event will take place March 31, beginning at 8 p.m., at MONDO.

Following the film's showing, a discussion with filmmakers Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss will be held.

Schiller is an internationally-acclaimed documentarian whose first feature “Before Stonewall” won two Emmy Awards and was broadcast on more than 30 television stations. The Summit screening has been scheduled to honor Schiller’s pioneering work upon her return from India where she has been working on "Earth Repair: Ecological Restoration on Three Continents" under a Fulbright scholarship.
