About the Director

Her learned experience as a person with many intersectional identities has a huge influence on her work. Lily holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and a MA in Directing Documentary from the National Film and Television School in the UK. She is currently living and working in London, but looks forward to spending the summer back in Alabama.
