B: in Toronto, Ontario

Born in Toronto, Larysa Kondracki studied English and theatre at Montreal’s McGill University. She received an M.F.A. in film direction from Columbia University and directed the short film Viko which played at many film festivals to widespread acclaim. The Whistlelblower was her feature directorial debut and so far her only feature film. The vast majority of her work has been for television. Kondracki has written feature projects for Focus Features, HBO Films, Participant Media, Showtime Entertainment and many others. She created quite a lot of controversy in 2018 when she was brought on board to direct a new mini-series version of the classic Australian film, Picnic at Hanging Rock. Australian Directors’ Guild CEO Kingston Anderson was quoted as saying “Australian directors are amazed and astonished at the choice of a foreign director to work on a classic — especially as it is not a co-production and is being fully financed in Australia.”
