Growing Up Female & Union MaidsJulia Reichert, Jim Klein

In six short portraits, this landmark documentary from 1971 zooms in on what it means to grow up as a woman during that period. Six girls and women aged 5 to 34 open up their hearts and reflect on how their lives and self-image is defined by institutions such as marriage, school, advertising and popular culture. When the film was released in 1971, it caused both controversy and enthusiasm. Today, the film is a remarkable time capsule that shows how much has changed, but also how much has remained the same.
