EXCLUSIVE PODCAST: In 2016, a 23-year-old Miles Joris-Peyrafitte became one of the youngest filmmakers to have a competing feature film win a Special Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival. The winning film, As You Are, centered around a topic fresh in Joris-Peyrafitte’s mind – youth – telling a coming of age story that focuses on the lonely, confusing and morbid realities of three teens in the early 1990s. Today, Joris-Peyrafitte explains his intention of treating youthful experiences with respect as well as the Nirvana-inspired film title.
