Elle talks about the importance of redrafting your way to movie success – revealing how she ruthlessly discarded three full scripts. The writer-director also explains how she hunted down rising actor Gideon Adlon (who plays Claire), the impact of film school on her career path, and the importance of having a technical skill in the film industry.

LOGLINE: Witch Hunt is set in a modern America where witches are real and witchcraft is illegal. A sheltered teenager, played by Gideon Adlon, must face her own demons and prejudices as she helps two young witches avoid law enforcement and cross the southern border to asylum in Mexico.
