A live recording of Best Girl Grip at Underwire Film Festival with filmmaker, producer and journalist Roxy Rezvany.
Roxy won the Best Director award at the festival last year for her short documentary Little Pyongyang, which also played at prestigious festivals such as Sheffield Doc/Fest and CPH:DOX.
She started out working for Vice, field producing both seasons of the Emmy award-nominated series ‘Gaycation’ with Ellen Page and is currently working as a full time director in documentary and scripted film.
We talk about how Little Pyongyang launched her career, and the year's she had since it came out in terms of both accomplishments and struggles, as well as what it’s like to be working in this industry as young woman and a person of colour.
