+ Remember that Kate Winslet paleontology movie I told you about a hundred years ago back in December? Well, it started getting attention a few weeks ago in Mary Anning’s hometown and a lot of people are not happy with the lesbian love story, including some of Anning’s family.

As a working class, queer film maker, I continually explore the themes of class, gender, sexuality within my work, treating my truthful characters with utter respect and I hope giving them authentic respectful lives and relationships they deserve
