    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox" Director Sara Lamm

    Whoever thinks enlightened can't be found on a soap label hasn't looked closely at that text-heavy blue bottle in the Trader Joe's aisle. From afar Dr. Bronner's unadorned, institutional-like bottles look as if they're covered with warnings (one of the big ones: DILUTE!). Rather, they are packed with mind-twisting moral teachings. Even looking for some instructions gives you a healthy dose: "Enjoy body rub to stimulate body-mind-soul-spirit and teach the essene moral ABC uniting all free in the shepherd astronomer Israel's greatest all-one-god-faith!" Sara Lamm's documentary about Dr. Emanuel Bronner, master soapmaker, self-proclaimed ra...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Drama/Mex" Director Gerardo Naranjo

    In Mexican director Gerardo Naranjo's "Drama/Mex," two interlaced stories unfold over the course of the same long, hot day in the once lush and now decadent resort town of Acapulco. The first involves the beautiful and cool Fernanda, who is forced to deal with the sudden emergence of her ex-lover, Chino. Her boyfriend, Gonzalo, must now compete with the intense sexual tension Fernanda and Chino share. The second story concerns Jamie, an office worker with hidden indiscretions, attempting suicide in a beachfront hotel-until a precocious and equally dishonest teenage girl disrupts his plan. "Drama/Mex" debuted at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, ...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Colma: The Musical" director Richard Wong

    If John Hughes were to make a film of small-town teenagers who occasionally burst into song, he still would be miles away from Richard Wong's little-indie-that-could, "Colma: The Musical". Written by HP Mendoza and directed by Wong, "Colma" is a musical loveletter to their hometown and to teenagers...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "One to Another" co-Director Jean-Marc Barr

    Jean-Marc Barr and Pascal Arnold's "One to Another" finds Lucie surrounded by four handsome young men sunbathing on the rocks, and a reticent voyeur several metres behind. It becomes obvious, however, that she is not the object of everyone's desires and dreams here: rather, the object is Pierre, her brother and occasional lover. He intersects with all of their lives, often sexually, always emotionally and even musically, as front man for their small-town. Jean-Marc Barr gives his take on globalization and how a newspaper article started the ball rolling for "One to Another," which Arnold wrote and co-directed. Strand Releasing opens the film ...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Lady Chatterley" Director Pascale Ferran

    It used to be a rite of passage for American tourists to smuggle "Lady Chatterley's Lover" past Customs, feeling terribly hip. Then Roth v. United States pried D.H. Lawrence loose from the heavy-breathing censors, and through the '60s and '70s, he rose high in the college canon. Today, after a poun...
