I’ve been doing some interviews this year, and it’s really fun. I think I’ll keep it up. Here is a link to an interview with Jim Finn. Here is an interview I did with Jackie Goss. More coming up with Benj Gerdes & Jennifer Hayashida, James T. Hong, Sam Green, Eric Daniel Metzgar, and Adele Horne. I learn a lot from these conversations, and hope that other people will find them interesting also.
I am very excited to be programming this monthly series, presenting risk-taking documentary films for the Flaherty Seminar. Events are at Anthology Film Archives, beginning this September!
The Commoners is showing around a lot this spring, including at Athens International Film & Video Festival, Sarasota Film Festival, and at Director’s Lounge in Berlin. Okay, that last one already happened. Also, She used to see him most weekends is playing in Albuquerquethis weekend. I am learning how to grow plants from seeds, planning my wedding, and working on a new new new video about outer space and falling in love.
More festival double headers: Dallas Video Festival (The Commoners + She used to see him most weekends) and Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival (The Commoners + Sittin’ on a Million).
The Commoners is showing at video_dumbo on Sept. 26 at 5:30 in a program called “Bird Days.” Men Seeking Women is showing at Impakt Festival in the Netherlands this October. Also in October, Men Seeking Women & The Commoners will be showing at Antimatter Film Festival in Canada. Sittin’ on a Million and some other shorts of mine will be on display at the Arts Center of the Capital Region (Troy NY represent!) September 21-27.
