    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Quiet City" Director Aaron Katz

    Director and co-writer Aaron Katz's "Quiet City" follows 21 year-old Jamie [Erin Fisher] who travels to Brooklyn, NY from Atlanta, Georgia to visit her friend, but she's nowhere to be found. While looking further, Jamie meets Charlie [Cris Lankenau] who she asks for directions. Nothing to do and nothing but time leads them to bowls of coleslaw, footraces in the park, art shows, and after parties. The film is screening at New York's IFC Center in the series "New Talkies: Generation DIY" (also dubbed mumblecore by the press, including iW). This is Katz's second solo feature after last year's "Dance Party USA." "Quiet City" premiered at the 2007...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Manda Bala (Send a Bullet)" Director Jason Kohn

    Director Jason Kohn's doc "Manda Bala (Send a Bullet)" jumped into the festival circuit fray with a big win at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, taking both the grand jury prize for best documentary and the doc cinematography award for Heloisa Passos. The film's tag line basically sums up the doc's overall subject: "When the rich steal from the poor... the poor steal the rich." Set in Brazil, "Manda Bala" examines the corruption and class warfare that runs rampant in the South American country, with individual stories from the country's elite who fall victim to kidnapping for ransom, while conversely spotlighting the high-end thievery practice...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "2 Days in Paris" Director Julie Delpy

    Julie Delpy is the thinking man's ideal Frenchwoman--at least in her screen persona of Celine, the enchantress she created in Richard Linklater's cult films, "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset." An etherial porcelain blonde, Celine is sexually knowing yet unthreatening; independent but vulnerable; articulate, principled and a bit flaky. Better yet, she has a way with a Nina Simone song (see final scene of "Before Sunset") that would have kept even a steadier husband than Jesse from flying home to his wife. Now with "2 Days in Paris" (opening August 10th by Samuel Goldwyn Films and Red Envelope) multi-hyphenate Delpy makes her bow as a filmma...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "The Ten" Director David Wain

    Director David Wain's feature "The Ten" stars Jessica Alba, Gretchen Mol, Adam Brody, Paul Rudd, Liev Schreiber,Bobby Cannavale and Winona Ryder in "blasphemous comedic stories" inspired by the Biblical Ten Commandments. Each tale unfolds in a different style, but with characters and themes that overlap, as told by a narrator who, in turn, has his own moral problems. Wain has had a well-rounded career in film both in front and behind the camera. He has directed television including "The State" in the '90s in addition to writing for the series and others. And, in 2001 Wain's "Wet Hot American Summer" received a Gotham nomination. THINKFilm ope...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "No End in Sight" Director Charles Ferguson

    Charles Ferguson's "No End in Sight" is another in a long line of important Iraq documentaries. But the film's precision, what the New York Times calls a "mathematical" indictment of the current administration, is what separates it as a closely observed, investigative piece. Ferguson answered some...
