The NYWIFT Q & A Panel With Little Woods Producer, Rachael Fung

On  Friday, April 19, 2019  there was a screening and panel at the Angelika Film Center for the film Little Woods.  After the film, there was a Q&A to follow with producer Rachael Fung, moderated by NYWIFT Board Member Mary Miles.

Little Woods is written and directed by Nia DaCosta and produced by Rachael Fung.  The film stars Lily James, Tessa Thompson, and Luke Kirby.  

Little Woods is the film about Ollie (Tessa Thompson) who is a reformed drug runner in an economically depressed small town in North Dakota, who was caught coming back from Canada with medicine for her terminally ill mother and has been toeing the line ever since. After her mother dies, Ollie’s sister Deb (Lily James) shows up on her doorstep with a hungry child and an unplanned pregnancy. Ollie can only see one viable option: quickly raise money to pay back the bank and hold onto their mother’s home, so Deb can raise her family safely away from her abusive ex. But to do that, she’ll need to return to the dangerous way of life she thought she’d left behind.

Writer/director Nia DaCosta won Tribeca Film Festival’s 2018 Nora Ephron Award for this emotionally-charged small-town modern Western about two women in rural America. Their sister bond, beautifully exemplified by the authentic and lived-in relationship between Tessa Thompson’s Ollie and Lily James’ Deb, is what keeps them connected but can also tie them down.

The film premiered originally at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival and is in theaters now. Here is the trailer.  Also, to stay up to date, stay in touch via Facebook, and Twitter.
