Strand Releasing08.19.13

We're thrilled to announce that INTERIOR is getting a domestic release in early 2014 with Strand Releasing. It's especially sweet for yours truly because I came of age watching movies from the Strand catalog, movies that pushed the envelope and influenced me as a filmmaker. A digital and DVD release will coincide with a theatrical run in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. When I have exact dates Ill let you know.


Miami, I wasn't so sure, but you did me right. Double bill of IN THEIR ROOM LONDON and INTERIOR was as good as I hoped it might be and how cool to get recognized for "being edgy" -their words not mine. Much appreciated for the Vanguard Award, encouraging to keep treading the places that move me, and sometimes scare the crap out of me! Thank you HBO Latin America and MLGFF.

Oz on Oz03.05.13

I WANT YOUR LOVE was banned in Australia. I'm hoping that the Classification Board will reconsider their ruling and somewhere in this process I can understand how they came to this decision in the first place. James Franco spoke up about it yesterday, as my friend and as my collaborator on INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR., a film that will most likely be banned in OZ as well.

"Interior. Leather Bar." Premiering at Sundance!!!11.29.12

I couldn't be more excited to spill the beans: my feature collaboration with James Franco, "Interior. Leather Bar." will have it's premiere at Sundance this January! The movie formally known as "James Franco's 40 Minutes" has had a name change. Don't ask. But we're giddy with excitement! More details to come.
