Q&A with Ryan Fleck, Anna Boden, and Ryan Reynolds

What was it about the riverboat casinos in Iowa that compelled you to write this story?
It was really interesting to see the anti-glamorous version of a casino. There was a story in there somewhere that we hadn’t seen on film before.

Q&A with Laurie David

How did you get involved with this film?
This project actually just came to me—Katie [Couric] got in touch with me out of the blue with an email that simply said, “would you be interested in doing an Inconvenient Truth on food?”

Q&A with Emma Thompson

How much fun was it to play someone that rude?
It was bliss, of course, because I think we were all far too well brought up. From very early on we’re encouraged to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to everyone for no good reason, and of course for things we don’t actually want.

Esta Niña Linda – Directed by Christian J. Fernandez

Desperate to escape their native Cuba in a time of turmoil, Marciel and his young sister, Perla, journey in the cover of nightfall, boarding a makeshift raft. Cobbled together by twisted metal and foam and propelled by an old Soviet car engine, their vessel is the only thing that stands between them and the open sea. Esta Niña Linda is a short film about survival, and the story of a brother and sister’s relationship as they trek 90 miles in search of the U.S.
