Julie Stands UP

Director: Irene Fernandez
15 minutes

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.

Screening: Friday 5th July / 6:30 pm
New Academic Building, Goldsmiths College
New Cross, London SE14 6NW

  1. Dear Julie, it was a real pleasure to meet you after the screening yesterday, though briefly. I hope you had a great time. The films were extraordinary and beautiful. Do you know how we can obtain full-length versions of 'Julie Stands Up'?
