VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: MAINELAND DIRECTOR MIAO WANG
by Jason Whyte
""MAINELAND is a coming of age film that follows a boy and a girl from China's wealthy elite as they settle into a boarding school in a small town in Maine. They are part of the enormous wave of "parachute students" who are sent alone to a boarding school in a foreign country. The film weaves between verite scenes and lyrical cinematic sequences. While told through personal stories and anchored in the universal theme of growing up as awkward teenagers in high school, the film illuminates many larger timely and relevant contexts such as China slash U.S. relations, education, and immigration." Director Miao Wang on MAINELAND which screens at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival." (more)
VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: ARMED WITH FAITH DIRECTOR ASAD FARQUI
by Jason Whyte
""The men of the KPK BDU unit defuse terrorist planted bombs in the region, often using just their bare hands. "Indispensable" gets up close and personal with two bomb technicians and their commander as they defend their homeland from terrorists spurred by the war in Afghanistan and drone strikes in region. Ironically, the KPK BDU battle men who look like them, speak their language, share the same faith, and even come from their villages. Our characters are a window into a larger investigation of the American led war that has raged on for nearly 15 years and claimed over 50,000 civilian lives. Viewers will have unprecedented access to the legacy of devastation the conflict has wrought in the region where the battle is taking place and from where the modern face of warfare originates." Director Asad Farqui on ARMED WITH FAITH which screens at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival." (more)
VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: DAVID HOCKNEY AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS DIRECTOR PHIL GRABSKY
by Jason Whyte

David Hockney has just turned 80 but has lost none of his energy, creativity and humour; all of which are in ample display in a gorgeous film that centres on two landmark shows in 2012 and 2016 at the Royal Academy of Arts in London." Phil Grabsky on DAVID HOCKNEY AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS which screens at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival." (more)
VIFF 2017 INTERVIEW: SISSYMAN DIRECTOR JOSHUA ATEST LITTLE
by Jason Whyte
""SISSYMAN is a short intense drama about two characters clashing over what it means to be a man. It is set in the midst of the Stonewall Riots, which took place in New York City in 1969. After years of abuse and marginalization, a spontaneous mob of LGBTQ people fought an intense days' long battle with the NYPD. The protagonists of SISSYMAN, a riot cop and a drag queen, are on opposite sides of the conflict." Director Joshua Atest Little on SISSYMAN which screens at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival." (more)
