Two years after "Another Earth" and "Sound of My Voice" catapulted her to indie icon status at Sundance, Brit Marling reunited with her "Sound of My Voice" director and co-writer Zal Batmanglij for the Fox Searchlight thriller "The East," now available on DVD and Blu-ray. The film centers on an ex-FBI agent (Marling) who infiltrates an anarchist collective known as The East suspected of attacking corporate CEOs. Once embedded within the group (headed by a shaggy Alexander Skarsgård), however, she soon finds herself on their side.
In a video, below, exclusive to Indiewire, Marling and Batmanglij dish on how they made "The East" look like it was made for a much higher budget than it actually was (the reported budget for the film is just over $6 million).
