Guests Expected

Directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen are expected to attend.


Think you know all there is to know about Julia Child? Think again. This sumptuously shot biography from the Oscar-nominated directors of RBG (2018) not only fills in many overlooked details of Child’s life, but also tenderly exposes the motivations of an intensely complicated woman who dared to share her passion for cooking with the world. Infused with infectious joy, that voice, and drool-inducing footage of buttery French food, Julia is a treasure trove of personal anecdotes, witty correspondence, and the very personal ingredients of a life lived to the brim.

Julia will be offered as a community screening, free and open to the public. Attendees must RSVP for tickets.
