This is just a link round-up as to what I was up to this past March doing some coverage for The Movie Buff at SXSW, where I put links to my coverage for the interviews, reviews and short film round-ups.
I was able to chat with actress Lexy Hammonds who plays Cara in the new, surrealist neo-noir film "Drive All Night" that recently premiered at Cinequest. In the film, Hammonds plays Cara, a mysterious passenger who gets in the backseat of a taxi driven by reclusive driver Dave (Yutaka Takeuchi). In the conversation, we discuss the film's premiere, what it was like building chemistry with Yutaka, costume design, video games, conspiracy theories and much more.
Non Western is a documentary that follows Montana couple Thaddeus Red Bird and Nanci Red Bird as they prepare for their upcoming wedding and they have to adjust to each other's cultures as Nanci learns to become Northern Cheyenne. A film about gender roles and cultural differences, sometimes there's more context needed but as a character study, it shines.
