Interview: Gaby Hoffmann talks Goodbye World

We spoke with Gaby Hoffmann (Crystal Fairy, Girls) about her role as the complicated heroine Laura in Goodbye World, post-apocalyptic life, Dorothy Day, watching Kid Cudi discover the joys of acting and her transition from child to adult actor. I don’t do much to prepare to be honest, it just hasn’t ever been a part of my approach.

Interview: E.L. Katz

I spoke with E.L. Katz on directing his first feature length film Cheap Thrills, what horrifies him in real life and how being a jack of all trades is the best training you can give yourself if you want to go into directing. How does it feel to make your debuted as a feature film director? I think where I’m sitting now it feels good.

Interview: Lotfy Nathan chats about the 12 O’Clock Boys

12 O’Clock Boys is the stunning new documentary from Lotfy Nathan. He takes us past the clichéd Baltimore we know from shows such as The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Street and into the surprisingly beautiful world of dirt bike riding. The 12 O’Clock Boys are a gang of dirt bike riders who got their name from their ability to ride whilst doing an almost perfectly vertical wheelie.
