Join us for a film and a pre-screening discussion with a Durham Museum curator! In partnership with The Durham Museum, celebrating their exhibition 'JULIA CHILD: A RECIPE FOR LIFE', which runs from October 7, 2023 until February 11, 2024 and explores the key ingredients that led to Julia’s personal evolution and America’s culinary revolution.
Julia brings to life 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 12-year struggle to create and publish the revolutionary "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, and her rapid ascent to become the country’s most unlikely television star. It’s the empowering story of a woman who found her purpose — and her fame — at 50, and took America along on the whole delicious journey.
