Through the Lens: Don't Make Me Over

Jul 5, 2016

For the latest installment in our Through the Lens series, we’re trying something different and talking about an in-the-works documentary. Director Ellen Goosenberg-Kent is working on a film called Don’t Make Me Over about the life and career of famed singer Dionne Warwick. Recognized at an early age for her vocal talent, Warwick was one the greatest female voices of her generation and an outspoken advocate for social and political change. Warwick and others will join us to talk about her inspiring journey.

On Wednesday, July 13, the Utah Film Center is hosting a unique event featuring a conversation with Dionne Warwick and Ellen Goosenberg-Kent based around film clips that highlight Warwick’s life, career, and activism, and which will form the foundation for the upcoming documentary in early production. Doug Fabrizio will moderate the conversation, and afterwards Warwick will perform a selection of her greatest hits. The event is a ticketed fund-raiser for the Utah Film Center. DETAILS
