About the filmmaker:
William Todd Field is an American actor and filmmaker who imbues his work with a deeply humanistic voice and a profound attention to detail. He earned his masters in film from the AFI Conservatory where he crafted his short films When I Was a Boy (1993) and Nonnie & Alex (1995). Both films premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and the latter received a Special Jury Prize. He returned to Sundance to debut his first feature film, the internationally acclaimed In the Bedroom (2001), which received five Academy Award nominations and was named Best Picture of the Year by major publications. Field’s next film, Little Children (2006), based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, premiered at the 44th New York Film Festival and received similar accolades.
