Polymath Rebecca Miller began her career as a painter, sculptor, and actor before making the transition to acclaimed writer-director with the boldly original ANGELA. The haunting tale of a young girl who retreats into a spiritual fantasy world to cope with her emotionally volatile mother, the film established what would become hallmarks of Miller’s work: an interest in fraught family dynamics and a unique ability to evoke complex psychological states. These qualities are on full display in her subsequent films, including PERSONAL VELOCITY, an award-winning portrait of three women on the edge based on Miller’s own short stories.
