Upon graduating in 2011 with a BA in Visual Arts, Nathalie Christmas garnered praise from Slamdance Film Festival, Dazed and Confused, and Nowness for writing and directing coming-of-age films “Rose and Sophia,” and “Seashells.” Born and raised in a religious, idyllic farm-town alongside five sisters, much of their work centers around a fantasized femme perspective. Informed by autobiography, their stories take on new life through juxtaposition and exploration of genre. Christmas currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
