Read my interview with Julia Marchese here.
Though its insularity is occasionally disadvantageous to Marchese’s statements, her first feature documentary is an assured one. Due to her finality at The New Beverly this could have benefitted from a farther reaching demographic, but as with the budgetary restraints inhibiting travel, it’s much easier to forgo the solitary angle when she’s fighting the good fight for cinema, both repertory and digital. In conclusion, whether you overlook the focus of the film or not, the film industry is an important one, and Julia has directed a delicate plea to the preservation of a frighteningly scarce art.
