Patricia Rozema was raised in a small town in Ontario where her strict Dutch-Calvinist parents forbid her from seeing movies until she reached the age of 16. She studied philosophy and English literature at Calvin College in Michigan and soon found herself pursuing a career as a writer/director. Her first feature, I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing, won the Prix de la Jeunesse at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival and was praised by international critics. Rozema also directed the film Six Gestures (1997), which was nominated for a Grammy, awarded a Prime Time Emmy, and a Golden Rose. Rozema has directed, and also written, edited, and produced a number of short films such as Desperanto (1991) as part of Montreal Vu Par and This Might Be Good (2000) for the Toronto International Film Festival. Rozema’s television credits include involvement in HBO’s Tell Me You Love Me (2007) and In Treatment (2010). In 2009, she received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for the HBO movie Grey Gardens, starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange.
