Join us for a pre-screening Q&A with Carmilla writer and director Emily Harris hosted by Professor Deborah Shaw, University of Portsmouth.
Emily Harris is a filmmaker, photographer, writer, director and artist whose credits include a ground-breaking retrospective of David Bowie for the V&A. Carmilla was her first time taking a sole directorial credit, after co-directing Love Is Thicker Than Water (2016) with Ate de Jong. Across her work in the past, she’s always been a collaborator, and found co-directing natural, but Carmilla felt different. “This one made a lot of sense to do it by myself.”
Dr Deborah Shaw is Professor of Film and Screen Studies at the University of Portsmouth, and Research Lead for the School of Film, Media and Communication. Her research interests include transnational film theory, Latin American cinema, and film and migration, and she has published widely in these areas.
