Stephanie Day

Stephanie Jane Day is a writer and director with an extensive oeuvre of visually vibrant and philosophically challenging films. A graduate of both Australia’s National Film school and the Australian National University’s vaunted philosophy program, her idiosyncratic, highly stylised shorts have screened at festivals and galleries from Sydney to New Orleans and been called “haunting” (Pilerats) and “shamelessly wry” (Vice).

An Athlete Wrestling a Python is Stephanie’s most ambitious film to date, and sees her building on her philosophical tendencies and stylistic flair with a sharpened focus on realism underpinned by a beguiling meta-narrative.
