Julia Reichert: 50 Years in Film

Julia Reichert

Emmy Award–winner and three-time Academy Award–nominee Julia Reichert has produced one of the most distinguished bodies of work in American independent film. The Wexner Center is proud to have organized this 10-documentary retrospective celebrating the Ohio-based filmmaker’s career—from the landmark feminist consciousness-raiser Growing Up Female (1971) to her most recent films, including Sundance award–winner American Factory (2019) and 9to5: The Story of a Movement (2019).

Reichert joins us for several programs in the series, including a career-spanning talk on October 2. The retrospective travels to the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), and numerous other venues following its presentation at the Wex. A booklet including essays by author Barbara Ehrenreich and critic and filmmaker Farihah Zaman accompanies the series.

Organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and curated by Wexner Center Director of Film/Video David Filipi. Special thanks to the Chicken & Egg Pictures Breakthrough Filmmaker Award (now Chicken & Egg Award) for its support of this retrospective.
