“In 2006, my lifestyles used to be without end modified when SXSW programmed my directorial debut, Cocaine Angel. I had by no means been to Austin prior to, and to be handled like a valid filmmaker (which I assume I after all used to be??) in that exhilarating surroundings (cinema! track! breakfast tacos! oh my!) supplied me with a muchhhh-needed spice up of self-assurance that has saved me going ever since.
It’s loopy and humbling — it’s loopy humbling, is what it’s — to step out of doors myself and understand that the SXSW powers-that-be have selected to program the entire options that I’ve directed so far (Silver Jew , Septien , Ping Pong Summer , Don’t Leave Home ), particularly while you imagine how other every of those tasks are. But that’s simply a testomony to the movie staff’s adventurousness of spirit. I’m without end thankful to them for inviting me to the cine-table.”
