Carolyn Macartney made her first film with a Double 8mm film camera that she found in her grandmother’s attic. Her award-winning work is imbued with strong characters portrayed as outsiders and non-conformists. In her latest docudrama, Wanda the Wonderful, starring Arianne Margot, Zach Rose and James McMurtry, Carolyn turns her lens on a mysterious and legendary member of her own family: her notorious, sharp-shooting grandmother.
