Francis Lee



Born on his fam­i­ly’s farm in Soy­land, West York­shire (Unit­ed-King­dom), he stud­ied at Rose Bru­ford Col­lege. He then worked exten­sive­ly in the­atre, film, and tele­vi­sion as an actor. In 2012, he made his direct­ing debut with the short film The Farmer’s Wife. Five years lat­er, his fea­ture debut God’s Own Coun­try won many awards, such as Best Direc­tor Prize at the Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val and the Ted­dy Award at the Berli­nale. Ammonite is his sec­ond film.
