Under the Mask Documentary Film

“Under the Mask” is a documentary film currently in production that follows Erica Julien competing in the World Fencing Championship in Epee at age 71.

Erica was born in Germany in a refugee camp following WWII. Since then she’s raised a family, has grandchildren, lost her husband, works part time, and recently took up a new sport at age 66 – fencing. Now she is returning to Germany for the first time since leaving as a small child, and will represent the USA. We will dive into the various obstacles she’s overcome in life and on the fencing strip to reach the tournament.

The short version of the film screened twice at the Cucalorus Film Festival. The feature version is currently in post production.
