About the filmmaker:
Acclaimed writer and director Mike Mills crafts semi-autobiographical features exploring relationships between parents and children. His debut feature, the coming-of-age film Thumbsucker (2005), premiered at Sundance in 2005. His follow-up Beginners (2010), based on his own father’s coming out at the age of 75, premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. Inspired by his mother and sister, Mill’s 20th Century Women (2016) was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. He has also helmed several short films as well as music videos for artists like Moby, Yoko Ono, and The National.
