What neighborhood do you live in?
I live on the border of Bushwick and Bed-Stuy, about 15 minutes from where I grew up.
How do you like it?
I wake to the rooster's crow. You can buy a used motorcycle for $500 in the bodega/Fed Ex outpost up the street. There's no place like it.
Does living in Brooklyn affect the work you make?
Growing up here among so many different dialects has had a profound impact on my dialoging. Officially, I only speak English, but slang-wise I'm a polyglot.
What's the "film community" like in Brooklyn right now?
I don't know. Am I in it? How does one become a member?
What film that's not your own are you most excited about at the festival?
God Loves Uganda, After Tiller and Remote Area Medical in a three-way tie. They all look very compelling.
What's your favorite movie theater in Brooklyn?
BAM. It has a beautiful facade, it's one of the last venues in NYC where loitering on the steps is encouraged, and all of my friends are gonna be in the house on June 28!
