5 Clips from Vera Farmiga’s Directing Debut, ‘Higher Ground’

When I interviewed Vera Farmiga at SXSW earlier this year, she was in the middle of editing her directorial debut, Higher Ground. She was incredibly with how it had turned out and from the clips below, I’m more than interested to see how it turned out.

The film, opening August 26th, is based on Carolyn Briggs’ memoir This Dark World: A Memoir of Salvation Found and Lost and is the story of an 18-year-old mother living in a trailer with no plans in life except to have more kids. When she finds Jesus, she gives herself over to a radical New Testament church.

Farmiga stars alongside John Hawkes, Donna Murphy, Norbert Leo Butz and Nina Arianda.
