I'm part wood nymph. I require mountains and warm, dense patches of moss to thrive.
It's a very different thing, religion and faith. Religion is man-made, it's man-regulated. And faith, you can define God as you wish. But I think they're two different things.
I, for one, am tired of seeing movies about men damaging each other.
I come from a massive family, and the youngest is twentysomething years younger than I am, so I grew up with children.
I can't get my knickers in a twist about my age and ageing in an industry that caters to the ids of 14-year-olds.
Editing yourself is like an irksome coin toss. You've got to strip yourself of super ego and operate from the id. Maybe I've got my Freud mixed up. It's just hard to trade a beauty shot for the performance with truth and a brightly lit zit.
I think that films about faith made for faith-based communities have a certain tactic.

We're all sick of holy wars and bloodshed because religion is supposed to give us life and a better life and is supposed to bring out our best self. When it results in mass destruction and hatred and anxiety, it's the antithesis I think of what religion was designed to do.
The Ukrainian community is tight-knit by nature.
Honestly, I think a good film is spiritual, regardless of whether its subject is faith.
Faith is important to me.
I just hate one-dimensional portrayals of religion it's too cheap and easy to do, and ignores the nuances that go into having a belief system.
Someone once told me that religion is like a knife: You can stab someone with it, or you can slice bread with it.
Whether we call it religion or faith, we all battle for a balanced integrated soul.
Doubt is the middle position between knowledge and ignorance. It encompasses cynicism but also genuine questioning.
There are women who make things better, there are women who change things, there are women who make things happen, who make a difference. I want to be one of those women.
There's no wrong way to experience a film.
