About The Film:

Mrs. G tells the story of Mrs. Lea Gottlieb, the legendary designer, founder and owner of the Gottex swimwear empire. Gottlieb was a woman full of contradictions, but knew how to recover from period of crisis – from surviving the Holocaust, establishing a small factory in Israel, to her phenomenal success abroad. The film follows Mrs. G’s incredible creativity alongside her dominant personality, her complex relationships with her two daughters, and her unbridled passion, for which she paid a tragic price.
