Biography

At the dawn of her career, Brit Marling pulled a rare feat when two films she produced, wrote and starred in were featured side-by-side at the Sundance Film Festival. The Georgetown-educated filmmaker launched her career with the critically acclaimed documentary "Boxers and Ballerinas" (2004), about the socio-political environment surrounding aspiring young athletes living in Havana, Cuba and neighboring Florida. In 2011, Marling drew raves for "Another Earth," a science fiction drama revolving around a tragic car accident that evolves into an unlikely relationship between the female driver and the widower from the vehicle she hit. Marling delivered an equally impressive performance that year with "The Sound of My Voice," as a ruthless cult leader who claims to have time-traveled from 2054. Both "Another Earth" and "The Sound of My Voice" showcased Marling's multitude of talents on and off-camera, and established her presence in Hollywood as a groundbreaking and fearless film auteur.
