In film, the proportion of gruel to the proportion of fun is so unbelievably outsized… it’s crazy!
Yes. But if it’s in you, in your bones, has infected you, you have no choice. No choice at all.
And yes, I love Ira Glass.
Three films remain fresh in my memory: Ghalib Shiraz Dhalla’s Embrace about the 2008 terrorist massacre in Mumbai; Strangers with young director Kabir Chopra and young actor Zoran Saher; and Reprise, a “relationship” film featuring two women and a college-bound daughter.
And he spoke to Angela, who plays the role of Sarah:
Angela Perri, an actor in the short Reprise which dealt with an abusive relationship, told me at the after-party:
I was intrigued at first by the character, an abusive alcoholic in a same sex marriage, and then further by Shripriya Mahesh’s (the writer/director) treatment of the relationship between the two women. Even though on the surface it might seem the details would create an unfamiliar situation for me, the story — one of connection, relationship and behavior — rung a deep familiar chord.
