"Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work," a film by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg, will screen at 7 p.m., March 8, in room 182 of the VCB. Free and open to the public. Discussion following led by Tina Buckingham.

Filmmakers Stern and Sundberg follow the comedienne as she assails the seasons of her 75th year. With fly-on-the-wall observations and close-up-and-personal interviews, they reveal that Rivers flows deeper than her brashly funny, truth-and-trash-talking, face-lifted blonde public persona normally allows us to see. Yes, Rivers is bleached, brazen, outspoken, restructured and all, but she's also absolutely brilliant, disciplined, generous and caring. She'd make a wonderful friend.
