Interview: Director Clio Bernard (Dark River)

Dark River opens today, the British drama tells the story of two siblings vying for control of their recently deceased father’s farm. The movie stars Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley and Sean Bean. I spoke to the director of the film Clio Bernard. We discussed what made her want to direct the movie, talk about the actor performances and much more.


For those of you not present, Clio and I had some phone connection issues that we had to manage to overcome. Clio had some interesting points to make about the making of the movie. Clio was engaging to speak to and I could sense a good upbeat energy from her speaking about the movie. It’s always fun to hear someone be passionate about their project.

The fun fact I learned about Clio is that she likes to read when she’s not working on films.

DARK RIVER is out now in theaters
