Brit Marling is a rising actress, writer, and producer, whose emerging talent made a mark at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival as the first female multi-hyphenate to have two films premiere side by side. In addition to the premiere of Another Earth, Marling’s second film, Sound of My Voice, premiered at Sundance in the Next category. Marling graduated valedictorian from Georgetown University studying Economics and Studio Art, and her work experience included a stint as an investment-banking analyst at Goldman Sachs. While at school, Marling’s foray into filmmaking began by writing and starring in projects that her friends were working on. This introduction led Marling to take a leave of absence to move to Havana, Cuba to co-direct the documentary Boxers and Ballerinas, which followed young artists and athletes living in the communist country.
Realizing that acting and filmmaking was what she found most fulfilling, Marling followed her passion and moved to Los Angeles, where she currently resides.
