Two by Barbara Schultz, Television Visionary
March 26 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM$10
In a pioneering career defined by artistic milestones, Barbara Schultz’ work as producer of the landmark KCET/PBS television anthology, Visions (1976-1980) stands today as a testament to both her immense talent and the glorious, sadly mostly untapped possibilities of the medium. Over the course of four seasons of Visions, Schultz redefined the boundaries of quality television by embracing ethnic and gender diversity, both in front of and behind the camera — reaching dramatic heights (and presenting employment opportunities) to a degree still unrealized by the industry well over three decades later.
