Julie STANDS Up, 5th July 2013 the first public screening
Will add the movie or link here. About 14 minutes documentary film from many hours film taken at many location through the last six or seven month.
For me it is also a great example, how one can make a story from bits and after deciding on what one wants to show, take out all that does not 'belong'.
I was stupefied all along by Irina Fernandez dedication, all helps she got when she needed a second and all the demands she put on me.
Some, I did not accept easy, but I do understand now.
That is what Irene wrote about on the International Documentary film website - blog.
Called: Julie StandsUp
Director: Irene Fernandez
A short portrait of Julie Kertesz, an 80-year-old woman who decided, in her late 70s, to take up stand-up comedy. Originally from Hungary and a French citizen, Julie Kertesz moved to London 5 years ago.
Julie’s stand-ups not only defy preconceived ideas about ageing but also communicate the power of creativity as a means to deal with the past, present and future. Her journey became a path of self-discovery, empowerment and self-realisation.
Here the trailer with bits from many films shown.
