Notably, she produced the acclaimed Icelandic feature Salt (2003) with her husband, Bradley Rust Gray. So’s 2006 recognition as one of “25 Filmmakers to Watch” by Filmmaker Magazine foreshadowed her successful career. Her debut film, In Between Days (2006), earned Sundance’s Special Jury Prize in 2007, and her subsequent work, like Treeless Mountain (2008), continued to captivate with its insightful exploration of characters and unique storytelling.
