The Munich Film Festival’s retrospective of my films is moving forward. I’m heading over at the end of June. They’re going to show all 7 films which is pretty amazing to me. Not that they’re going to show them, but that I actually made them.
They’re starting with Johnny Suede which has never screened in Germany. I don’t know who this guy is with Brad Pitt but apparently they share the same hair product.
I did an interview with the Festival website recently. Some good questions. Some may find a few of the answers familiar; some may not. Here’s a sample.
Over the years, you kept screening your films at Munich. What kept you coming back? What do you like about the city?
TD. One of the things an independent director looks for when bringing a film to a European festival is the openness and curiosity of its audiences, the festival’s devotion and support of filmmakers, the taste of the city’s pilsner and the quality of porn on the hotel television. In my experience I have found Munich to excel in all these areas.
