Synopsis

Eden. A beautiful and lush safe haven where all living creatures can fornicate peacefully, home to Adam and Eve, the first man and woman on Earth. 


Or so Eve thinks, until one day she is surprised by an unabashed stranger who introduces herself as Lilith, first woman on Earth. 


Eve’s initial confusion only worsens when Adam admits that Lilith is indeed his first wife, but insists she is a demon and as such doesn’t count.


Lilith, bored with the couple’s bickering, grabs the apples she’d come for and leaves, but Eve’s mind is too fully blown to let it slide. Defying Adam for the first time, Eve runs after Lilith for answers. 


What she will learn will rock the very foundation of everything Eve knows about the world – and about herself.

Director's Statement

LILITH & EVE is a project born with my first daughter.


My life partner Manon and I grew up in respectively Catholic and Jewish households, but we spent much of our adult lives unlearning what religion had taught us. In particular, we’ve always resented the story of Adam and Eve, which defines women as “man’s suitable helper” (Genesis 2:24). So when we first heard of Lilith, Adam’s first wife and equal, nicknamed “mother of all demons” for refusing to submit to Adam, we were destined to fall in love. After naming our first daughter after her, we decided to set the record straight and tell Lilith’s story as we saw it: the story of a biblically badass woman, who took control of her own destiny.


I knew then this project would be my début animation. Not only is animation a medium I love -and most of what I watch- but cinematically, it allows for a unique blend of magic and humor which I was excited to explore. Despite my enthusiasm, I knew very little of the practicalities of hand-drawn animation, so over the following two years, I taught myself at night, between jobbing hours and the time I spent with my daughters; Artemis was born 3 months before I finished the sound mix.


Manon developed the project with me from its inception, as co-writer and producer, and supported me during production. We were then lucky to be joined by some amazing collaborators: composer Camilla Uboldi, sound designer Louise Burton, lyricist Ashleigh Brown, and casting directors Katy Covell and Ollie Gilbert who in turn were able to bring onboard our dream cast: Susan Wokoma to voice Lilith, and Aimee Lou Wood to voice Eve. It was an absolute privilege to work with them. Finally, we asked our best friend and talented actor Conor Kennedy to voice Adam, and the wonderful trans activist and actor Jake Graf to voice Archangel Samael.


On behalf of the team, it gives us immense pride and joy to premiere the film at Tribeca this spring 2022.
