Four centuries separate today's viewers of A Woman Like That
from the film's subject, Roman painter Artemisia Gentileschi, but filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod says emotional reactions to the subject of her work aren't uncommon. Gentileschi endured hardships to forge a career as a painter in the 17th century. Weissbrod is on hand today to discuss Gentileschi's perseverance and legacy during a 6 p.m. screening at the Atkins Auditorium at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (4525 Oak, 816-751-1278). Tickets cost $5. See nelson-atkins.org
