During the Gotham Week Conference, this intimate ‘Working With Actors’ conversation will bring together the filmmakers behind Bodies Bodies Bodies and Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul. to discuss their 2022 stand-out films and how they came together.
Halina Reijn’s Bodies Bodies Bodies, starring Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Myha’la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, Rachel Sennott, Lee Pace, and Pete Davidson, is an English-language debut for the director. This horror-comedy was released earlier this year in August.
Filmmaking duo Adamma and Adanne Ebo will make their feature film debut with Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul., starring Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown, this September. The film, which premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, is also an alumnus of the 2019 Gotham Week Project Market and is based on a 2018 short film of the same name.
Led by Darrien Gipson, Executive Director of SAGindie, the Ebo sisters and Reijn will dive into the casting process, how they got the best performances out of their actors, and what has helped or challenged them the most when working with actors.

SAGindie promotes the working relationship between professional actors and passionate independent filmmakers. Since its formation in 1997, SAGindie has been traveling to film festivals, trade shows, and conventions spreading the word: Just because your film isn’t produced by a studio doesn’t mean you can’t use professional talent. As a free resource, SAGindie offers filmmakers clarity and kinship by guiding them through the SAG-AFTRA signatory process, making it even easier to hire professional actors, regardless of budget. SAGindie is made possible by a grant from the SAG-AFTRA Producers Industry Advancement & Cooperative Fund.
