VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: ANGKOR AWAKENS DIRECTOR ROBERT H. LIEBERMAN
by Jason Whyte
""ANGKOR AWAKENS is an intimate look into the psyche of the Cambodian people. Ostensibly it asks the question, what are the lingering effects on the generation born after the Khmer Rouge genocide. What I have come to discover is that it's really not just specific to Cambodia, but examines how a society can lose its way and go insane. I think it has a lesson to teach us in these troubled times." Director Robert H. Liberman on ANGKOR AWAKENS which screens at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival." (more)
VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY DIRECTOR DAVID O'LESKE
by Jason Whyte
""Fred Beckey is the original American "Dirtbag" climber whose name has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckey's stubborn, singular quest to conquer peaks meant a solitary life on the road, where he left a long trail of scorned climbing partners and lost lovers in his wake. DIRTBAG tells the exceptional life story of this all-time mountaineering icon, who at age 94 looks back for the first time on his groundbreaking accomplishments and rebellious lifestyle that inspired generations. Beckey is a legendary and polarizing figure to climbers and outdoorsmen, but he's also the perfect film character; lovingly cantankerous, obsessed with his passions to a fault, simultaneously relatable and enigmatic–and we believe the film appeals to a larger audience than just the core fans." Director David O'Leske on DIRTBAG which screens at the 2007 VIFF." (more)

VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: RHYTHM OF BEING DIRECTOR GIADA GHIRINGHELLI
by Jason Whyte
""RHYTHM OF BEING is an experimental, sensorial and existential film that is an ode to the rhythm of being. In simple terms, it is about life and the fact that all existence is a flux of becoming and never at rest, a perpetual generative process that we can not escape. By using projections, body and sound to compose the frame, a surreal and strange world is created."
