Julie Delpy on My Zoe

Feb 24, 2021

Eight years in the making, Julie Delpy’s fascinating sci-fi drama My Zoe stars Delpy as Isabelle, a recently divorced French scientist who refuses to come to terms with the potential loss of her young daughter after an accident. Leaving her grieving ex-husband (Richard Armitage), Isabelle looks to advances in medical technology for help, particularly those made by a fertility doctor (Daniel Brühl). With Delpy’s embodied performance at its center, My Zoe is a daring and original look at a parent’s deepest fear.

In advance of the film’s theatrical and VOD release, MoMI presented a free preview screening and live conversation and Q&A on February 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET with writer, director, and star Julie Delpy, moderated by MoMI’s Associate Curator of Science and Film Sonia Epstein.


Discussions with creative figures in film, television, and digital media—formerly the Pinewood Dialogues—made possible with a generous grant from the Pannonia Foundation.
