In a weird surprising turn of events, I found out that the director of The Dancing Dogs of Dombrova isn’t too far from me, so we met in person at a park, and sat the proper 6 feet apart and had a conversation.
We talk about Covid, theatres, his recent short film The Announcement and a bit of the journey that Dancing Dogs has had.
I got to talk to the director of one of my favourite films coming out of Fantasia, Clapboard Jungle. A great inspiring documentary about the hardships of making a film. You can read my review here. And read our conversation now!
I had the incredible pleasure of being able to talk to the director of one of my favourite film’s coming out of Fantasia. John Hsu directed the absolute hell out of Detention. Detention was the first film that I saw out of the festival, and it set the exact mood and feel that I wanted for the rest of the festival.
It’s only playing once during the festival, and that is tonight (August 24th) at 7 pm. So read my interview, buy a ticket (it’s only 8 bucks, cheaper than Cineplex – and safer than Cineplex) and enjoy a truly great film.
This past week I got to speak to Kelvin Harrison Jr. on the phone about finding his voice, both as an actor and as an excellent singer in The High Note. As I say during the interview, I first found Kelvin watching It Comes at Night, and ever since then I knew he would capture his audience’s attention every chance he got. I just didn’t know he would do so by singing.
We go into minor spoilers (plot details) but if you do not want to be spoiled, watch The Art of Self Defense first. Without further ado, enjoy our interview with Jesse Eisenberg!
