The Love Of Cinema

Julia with Betsy West & Julie Cohen | Picturehouse

April 4, 2022

Felicity Beckett talks to co-directors and producers Betsy West and Julie Cohen, about their new film Julia. 

This is a documentary that chronicles the life of Julia Child.

Julia tells the story of the legendary cookbook author and television superstar who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even about women.

Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives, and cutting-edge, mouth-watering food cinematography, the film traces Julia Child’s surprising path, from her struggles to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, to her empowering story of a woman who found fame in her 50s, and her calling as an unlikely television sensation.
