Josephine was asked “When did you first learn about The Sky is Everywhere? How did this project fall into your hands?” . She responded by saying “My agent Meghan Oliver at Paradigm sent me the script and I fell in love with it . I was like I have to make this! I have to make this! It’s about classical music, it takes place in the redwood forest, it has an unconventional family dynamic, and very importantly it’s about this really tense, profound experience of a young woman who’s lost her sister, which is at the heart of a very beautiful, playful, comedic, romantic, exploration that is a coming of age film so I was like how does it hold all these things? I have to make this.”
