Garrett Bradley joins m ss ng p eces
m ss ng p eces announced that Garrett Bradley has joined its live action directorial roster.
In 2017, Bradley’s short documentary Alone for The New York Times’ OpDocs was shortlisted for an Academy Award, and won numerous prizes including the Sundance Jury Prize. This year Bradley’s most recent film AMERICA premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, kicking off a national tour of the work throughout the duration of the year. A recipient of the Sundance Art of Nonfiction Fellowship, Bradley has been recognized by Creative Capital, Art Matters, The Ford Foundation, The MacArthur Foundation and The Warhol Foundation.
Garrett has a strength and vulnerability to her work that is stunningly magnetic. She’s got a singular vision, and one that we all need in 2019, said Kate Oppenheim, managing partner at m ss ng p eces. Bradley directed an episode of OWN’s QUEEN SUGAR under Executive Producer Ava DuVernay.
DuVernay says of Bradley,
I invited her to direct and she looked up to every dream I had for her... it just goes to show you have to look a little deeper than what Hollywood shows you.
