EXCLUSIVE: Mirrah Foulkes, the Australian writer, director and actor whose directorial debut feature film Judy & Punch starring Mia Wasikowska had its word premiere in the World Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, has signed with UTA.
Foulkes is the only female member of the filmmaking collective Blue-Tongue Films, which includes her husband David Michôd as well as Nash and Joel Edgerton. Nash Edgerton was a producer on Judy And Punch, a dark, satirical period revenge tale. That pic came after she directed a string of short films that garnered multiple festival awards.
