Sundance Interview: Christmas, Again Director Charles Poekel, Stars Kentucker Audley and Hannah Gross
After 25 years in New York, I must admit I'd never stopped to think about the people who work Christmas tree stands. Never, that is, until I saw Christmas, Again, Charles Poekel's debut feature film, borne of a perhaps unprecedented dedication to research.
I spoke with the actors of Bad Fever, premiering at SXSW, about improvisation, how their other artistic roles inform their acting, and the inevitability of a 3-D mumblecore film.
In a recent interview, mumblecore director Kentucker Audley discussed the cinematic movement he's associated with, his filmmaking technique, and how to break out of the genre's insular tendencies.
