New Day

Virtual discussion with New Day Films founders Julia Reichert, Jim Klein, Liane Brandon, and Amalie R. Rothschild.

Register here for this event:

New Day Films was founded in 1971 by four feminist filmmakers, Julia Reichert, Jim Klein, Liane Brandon, and Amalie Rothschild, who were frustrated by mainstream distribution channels. The ground breaking co-op would grow to over 300 titles and 140 filmmakers today.

Duke University's Archive of Documentary Arts and Screen/Society, along with the Power Plant Gallery, are proud to present four days of screenings and discussions celebrating more than 50 years of New Day Films.

The Archive of Documentary Arts at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library is the home of the New Day Films collection, which includes the original founder's films and the ever-expanding digital films collection. While New Day turned 50 in 2021, it is with great pleasure that we able to gather again in the Ruby Theater this October 2022 to explore some of the films from the archive.

Generous support for this program is provided by: Asian American & Diaspora Studies Program, Cinematic Arts, MFA Experimental and Documentary Arts Program, and Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History & Culture. And a special thanks to: Forum for Scholars & Publics, Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, The Center for Documentary Studies, and Duke Arts/Vice Provost for the Arts.
