Panamanian American filmmaker and actor currently working on the adaptation of Zola. Janicza Bravo has been directing and writing innovative content since her VICE produced short, “Eat!” was released in 2011. The film debut stars indie darling Katherine Waterston, known for her roles in Inherent Vice and Queen of Earth, and comedian Brett Gelman, who is also Janicza’s husband. In 2014, her short film Gregory Go Boom, starring Michael Cera, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and Janicza was named as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Cinema.”
Janicza recently wrapped the upcoming drama film ZOLA for A24.
