JULIA'S STEPPING STONES (2024) - Not Rated (32m)
GROWING UP FEMALE (1971) - Not Rated (49m)
Documentary

JULIA'S STEPPING STONES is about Julia Reichert, who grew up a working-class girl in the 1960s, before the Women’s Liberation movement. She went on to become a pioneering Oscar & Emmy winning documentary filmmaker. Julia passed away in December 2022, but before her death, she recorded the story of how she became a filmmaker. Her partner in film and love, Steven Bognar, spent 2023 crafting Julia’s story into a film. This short is the couple’s final collaboration. The film ends with Julia making her first film, GROWING UP FEMALE, a landmark documentary which is on the National Film Registry. 

GROWING UP FEMALE is the very first film of the modern women's movement. Produced in 1971, it caused controversy and exhilaration. It was widely used by consciousness-raising groups to generate interest and help explain feminism to a skeptical society. 

This double feature plays July 25th through August 1st
