When I fell upon the myth of Lilith many years ago, it immediately stirred something in me. I felt drawn to retelling the inner journey of the first woman who, despite finding herself alone in the world, with no model to follow, struggling with self–doubt, and dealing with her own loneliness and sadness, still resolutely sticks to her basic need of independence. This story seemed to eerily mirror my life’s journey, and so I set about exploring my personal interpretation of the Lilith myth.
In making this film I create a new interpretation of Lilith’s story, and restore her positive image, which was usually demonized in traditional legend. I see this film as a new creation myth for women. With Go in the Wilderness I breathe life into an archetypal heroine with whom women, young and old, can identify, and upon whose strength they can draw.
