About the Filmmakers: Bradford Thomason and Brett Whitcomb are a filmmaking team with a catalog that oscillates between archive-rich nostalgic portraits of pop culture, compelling stories of female empowerment, and observational snapshots of under-explored cultures. Their acclaimed film “GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling” premiered at Hot Docs in 2012, and The Village Voice called it “a beautiful and touching documentary.” The film helped inspire the hit Netflix series “GLOW”. “A Life in Waves”, which explores the life and career of electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani, premiered at SXSW in 2017 and was distributed by Hulu. Bradford and Brett recently co-directed the feature length documentary “Jasper Mall,” which had its world premiere at the 2020 Slamdance Film Festival.
