Independent documentary filmmaker Julia Reichert has been asking defining questions about workers’ rights, gender roles, taboos, and social change in America since the early 1970s. The pioneering Emmy Award–winner and four-time Academy Award–nominee comes to the Walker for a retrospective of her distinguished body of work. Her acclaimed film American Factory recently won both the Spirit Award and the Oscar for Best Documentary. Reichert joins us February 28 for a screening of Growing Up Female and February 29 for the Walker Dialogue.
