Julie Hubbert


Professor Hubbert's lecture will look at how Barbra’s political activities and interest in feminism led her to challenge and subvert well-established synergistic practices between the film and record industries, well before her groundbreaking directorial debut (first woman to direct a major studio film) with Yentl (1980). The lecture focuses on Funny Girl (1969), Up the Sandbox (1972) and The Way We Were (1973).
