Stillman interviewed about the business of film-making
Tied in with the screening of Damsels in Distress at the Toronto International Film Festival, Whit Stillman was interviewed on Canadian TV.
Stillman on 'Lang and O'Leary'
He was on the Lang and O’Leary Exchange
, a business show, on which he talked about the process of getting a film made and what the market is like these days. It’s well worth watching. His only comment about the content of Damsels
was that it’s “more funny and less realistic” than his previous movies. Watch the video here.
I’m short of time right now, but if anyone else has fast-typing fingers and is inclined to type up a transcript of the exchange I’d love to post it on the site here for posterity… Whit Stillman fans everywhere will no doubt be grateful!
UPDATE: Many thanks to Jonathan Takagi, who has transcribed the interview for us.
