Festival Stuck

Thaddaeus Scheel is a filmmaker who made a movie about the unforeseen difficulties of starting a family. Stuck is a great movie about a group of families who face bureaucratic impossibilities as they try to bring home their adopted children. Thaddaeus was very gracious to talk to us about where it was the hardest places to film and what it meant to emotionally connect with these families.

Festival Erasing Hate
0

Bryon Widner used to be a skinhead white supremacist. He filled his face with hateful tattoos that representing his violent actions and cruelty towards others. After years of being in that group, Bryon left and started a family. Trying to leave that life behind, he starts the process of removing his face tattoos. Director Bill Brummel documented this process capturing a really powerful story about redemption with the movie Erasing Hate. We talked to Bill about the bond he created with Bryon and the difficulty of filming lasers.

Festival Spaghetti for Two

“Spaghetti for Two” is one of the short films this year that has a simple story that is told through an inspired grandiose fashion. A man is looking to have lunch with the limited money he has but he keeps being distracted by his imaginative daydreams. German writer/director Matthias Rosenberger talked with us about what it was like to film those sequences and the storytelling perspective he took to make this movie.
