Revisioning ; women in pre history
"Signs Out of Time"
Julie was commissioned to produce animation and enhance photographs of Neolithic sculptures and to illustrate scenes for the documentary 'Signs Out of Time' about the archaeologist Marija Gimbutas, shown on an American TV network, PBS. Julie's work appears throughout this long form documentary, which can be directly purchased from Belli Productions or viewed in segments on You Tube.
In high school Julie studied prehistory and found women were rarely referred to. In her twenties, thirsty to know more, Julie discovered the work of the archaeologist Marija Gimbutas and others such as Robert Briffault and Eric Newman. All these researchers variously described women's contribution in prehistory as vital to not only survival, but also the creation of culture. This research resulted in Julie designing and directing a 13 minute, 35mm with Dolby Sound animation at Film Australia - "Double X and the Unmentionable Underbelly of His-story". Double X was awarded two international accolades, one in Chicago for documentary and one in Sydney for Fiction. Double X has been featured in many festivals.
