Roster director Aubrey Smyth was recently commissioned by Tribeca Studios and 23andMe as part of the Identity series, and her first documentary, The Need To Know, explores the story of 29-year-old Amber, who found out that her biological father wasn’t her real father after a test with 23AndMe.
Aubrey joined an elite group of 23 filmmakers who over the past year explored compelling DNA journeys of every kind. More than half of the filmmakers selected were female. She was honored last night at a screening and launch party at the Tribeca Film Festival.
23andMe will highlight each and every film on Vimeo and across its own channels from April 25th and onward.
