How to Have Sex

Winner of the 2021 Next Step Critics’ Week prize, Molly Manning Walker moved into a November shoot late last year for the shot in Greece How to Have Sex – which was project supported by Film4, BFI and MK2. A cinematographer for the past decade (recent works include the Sundance 2023 feature Scrapper and a Radiohead video), the British filmmaker enlisted Mia McKenna-Bruce, Lara Peake, Shaun Thomas, Sam Bottomley and newcomers Enva Lewis and Laura Ambler for the project. Her first short Good Thanks, You? premiered in the Critics’ Week section.

Gist: This follows a group of teenage girls as they navigate early sexual encounters on a rite of passage clubbing holiday.

Release Date/Prediction: Can’t help but think of this being a perfect counterpart vaca from what we saw in Aftersun…hence the idea of a Critics’ Week in Cannes being the more than optimal premiere destination.
