Nerdophiles had the pleasure of chatting with the writer and director of season 3 of The Girlfriend Experience, Anja Marquardt!
This season, an official 2021 SXSW selection, is the next chapter in the acclaimed anthology, following newcomer Iris (Julia Goldani Telles). Iris is an American in London, fresh from dropping out of a prestigious graduate program and leaving her ailing father and sister, his caretaker, behind. Her day job is at a dynamic Global Technology company where she gets to use her interest in human behavior to drive technological advances. Iris is at a crossroads when her work as a high-end escort collides with her day job and her hobbies in interesting ways.
Watch our sit-down with Anja Marquardt about the process of writing and directing this entire season, her collaboration with Julia on the many layers of Iris, creating a body of art that respects sex work in its portrayal, and so much more!
The Girlfriend Experience premieres May 2nd only on STARZ!
