A director is a visual fiction writer. It’s about telling the story, and connecting with the actors to make something truer than life.
- Gail Harvey
Gail Harvey is a multi award-winning television and film director and producer. Her background is in photography and she branded out to film after an illustrious career as photojournalist and stills photographer. As a film director, she was mentored by Norman Jewison, Wim Wenders and Arthur Penn, and was the third woman ever hired as a staff photojournalist at United Press International wire service.
Most recently, Harvey has directed three seasons (six episodes) of the Netflix show VIRGIN RIVER, the number one show in the world with billions of minutes viewed.
I will say there was a sensitivity that is just inherent when you have a female director and just people behind the camera who are coming at it honoring Jennifer's story.

Some films become an art piece, while others showcase the art it aims to spotlight. Looking is the Original Sin does both, capturing both the eye of the director and the art that fuels the characters within.
