Julia Reichert: Fifty Years in Film
April 18 – May 2, 2020
Emmy and Academy Award – winner Julia Reichert — a founder of the groundbreaking collective New Day Films — has created one of the most admired bodies of work in American nonfiction cinema. Her first film essay Growing Up Female spawned controversy on its release in 1971. Her most recent film, 9to5: The Story of a Movement — which is screening at the AFI in Silver Spring in May — revisits the women office workers who famously fueled workplace reforms in Boston during the 1970s. The Gallery is pleased to join the American Film Institute in this Julia Reichert retrospective. The program was organized by David Filipi of the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, with The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Special thanks to the Chicken & Egg Pictures for support.
