What it's about: A group of affluent (monetarily and culturally) friends gather to celebrate Katinkas birthday. It´s all rather stiff to begin with. But things are livened up with the arrival of Katinkas brother and his girlfriend Linda, a game-show hostess from another social class. She is welcomed as a delightful and harmless character, but as the evening moves forward the group feels increasingly provoked by her.
On things that (may have) inspired the film: "We did not watch many movies in pre-production on purpose. The only films I and the photographer looked at, for various reasons, were 'Harold and Maude,' 'Metropolitan' and the TV series 'Carnivale.' Really strange. I don't think it ended up having to do anything with our film in the end. The inspiration for the character Katinkas' wardrobe was a picture of Joni Mitchell in the 70s."
Indiewire invited Tribeca Film Festival directors to tell us about their films, including what inspired them, the challenges they faced and what they're doing next. We'll be publishing their responses leading up to the 2012 festival.
