God's Creatures

Q&A with directors Saela Davis & Anna Rose Holmer, moderated by JBFC Board President Janet Maslin

PREVIEW SCREENING EVENT In a windswept fishing village, a mother is torn between protecting her beloved son and her own sense of right and wrong. A lie she tells for him rips apart their family and close-knit community in this tense, sweepingly emotional epic. Starring Emily Watson and Paul Mescal (Normal People, The Lost Daughter).

Directing partners Saela Davis & Anna Rose Holmer weave a poetic tapestry of intersecting relationships: mother and son, past and present, humanity and nature.

Saela Davis & Anna Rose Holmer are filmmakers based in Brooklyn, New York. Over the past decade, Saela and Anna have collaborated on multiple short- and long-form fiction and nonfiction works. Each has assumed different craft roles (camerawoman, editor, writer, director, producer) specific to each project. Through these collaborations, their partnership has evolved and strengthened leading them to join forces as directors. Their most notable collaboration is their critically acclaimed fiction feature film The Fits (Saela as editor/co-writer, Anna as director/co-writer). The Fits premiered at the 2015 Venice International Film Festival and screened at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. It was nominated for Breakthrough Director at the 2016 Gotham Awards and Best First Feature at the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards, and won the Critics Award at the 2017 Deauville Film Festival. Their psychological drama God’s Creatures marks their feature debut as a directing team.
