Obsessed with The OA? The story of the angel on Earth, Prairie Johnson, and her epic journey came from filmmakers Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij who created, co-wrote, and co-produced the series together. This isn’t the first time the duo brought cerebral mysterious thrills to their audiences. The two had their filmmaking start together at the Sundance Film Festival! Marling and Batmanglij first came to the Festival in 2011 with Sound of My Voice and again in 2013 with The East. Both films are directed by Zal Batmanglij, star Brit Marling, and are written and produced by the two together.
