Lisa D’Apolito, filmmaker, director, and producer of acclaimed Gilda Radner documentary will be the featured speaker for Gilda’s Club NYC 11th Annual Celebrating Women luncheon, at the Metropolitan Club, Wednesday, May 9th .
D’Apolito became interested in Gilda through her work with Gilda’s Club, where she has been helping the nonprofit create short films for their events since 2010. Love, Gilda showcases the hilarious highs and tragic lows in an incredible life of the Saturday Night Live comedian, and one that echoed one of her most famous lines: It’s always something.
“I am honored to be the keynote speaker at Celebrating Women,” states D’Apolito. “Gilda Radner’slegacy is truly unique as she has not only inspired today’s comedians but she is an ongoing inspiration for people affected by cancer through the work done at Gilda’s Club.”
