We asked our filmmakers some questions about them and their work. For further questions, join us at the designated post-screening Q+A!
1. What is your connection to the South?
I’m from Pretoria, South Africa, which is about 8000 miles South of here. So, in a way, I can say that I moved up North to the South when I came to Nashville three years ago to attend Vanderbilt University. I have loved living in the South. During my time in Music City I’ve had the good fortune of visiting Georgia and Louisiana, while passing through Alabama and Mississippi. I cannot wait to add South Carolina to the list!
2. Where did you get your inspiration for this work?
My main inspiration was the clear imbalance in gender roles I’ve noticed in households back home, as well as here in the US.
3. How did you start making films?
I started making films on my cell phone while I was in high school. I’d get an idea, shoot it immediately, and edit using Windows Movie Maker (RIP).
4. Did anything interesting or funny happen on set during the shooting?
Not, really. (I wish I had a more interesting answer for this one).
5. What do you look forward to the most during Indie Grits?
I’ve never been to a film festival before! I’ve heard that Indie Grits is a festival like no other, so I’m looking forward to fully immersing myself in everything y’all have to offer. I want to watch dozens of movies, experience Columbus, and meet fellow film lovers.
6. Why should someone see your film?
I like to think that it’s a film only I could have made because it comes from a personal place both stylistically and thematically. So, people should watch it because they won’t be able to see something like it anywhere else.
