We speak to the director of Bunny and the Bull : Paul King

We speak to the director of Bunny and the Bull. Fans of The Mighty Boosh rejoiced at the news that series director Paul King was turning his gaze to the big screen. Featuring predictably great comic turns from Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt and Richard Ayoade, Bunny and the Bull is sure to please the legions of Boosh obsessives out there. But King is by no means playing it safe in his transition to feature directing, as he explained when we met this week. Did you always imagine ...

Interview with Martin Pieter Zandvliet the director of Applause.

Image: Martin Pieter Zandvliet (right) with his leading lady Paprika Steen Applause, the impressive debut feature from Danish director Martin Pieter Zandvliet, tells the story of Thea, an acclaimed actress attempting to reconnect with her two young sons whilst recovering from alcoholism. Atmospherically shot and admirably economical in its storytelling, the film is anchored by a stunning lead performance from veteran actress Paprika Steen (Festen, Open Hearts, The Idiots). We caught up ...

Focus from London Festival on Actor/Director/Writer Bouli Lanners

Bouli Lanners is a Belgian actor and writer-director, whose Ultranova screened to great acclaim at the LFF in 2005. His follow-up, Eldorado, is a beautifully cinematic and absurdly funny road movie that also packs a hefty emotional punch. A lot of the films I’ve seen at this year’s Festival have been very sombre, so with Eldorado it was nice to see something that at least made me laugh before going on to fill me with a sense of sadness! It’s a very idiosyncratic film, full of strange litt...

Interview with Donald Mugisha

Donald Mugisha is a founding member of Ugandan film-making collective Yes! That’s Us. Their debut feature Divizionz is a refreshingly authentic portrait of African inner city slum life, centred around a group of young friends striving to make it in the city as musicians. Donald Mugisha Could you start by talking a bit about your film-making collective Yes! That's Us - how you formed, how you work together, and how you came to make this feature? We're a guerrilla filmmak...

Interview with the makers of Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms

Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms is an enormously fun new animated film from Denmark, about an earthworm who harbours a desire to escape his dull existence and form the world's greatest disco band! We caught up with the film's director Thomas Borch Nielson, along with co-directors Tonni Zinck and Daniel Silwerfeldt. Thomas Borch Nielson Could you start by talking about the animation process used for the film? Were there any unexpected challenges? Tonni Zinck: I was i...

Focus from London on Medicine for Melancholy

Barry Jenkins has emerged as a talent to watch with his debut feature Medicine for Melancholy. The film charts the aftermath of a drunken one-night stand between two African-American twentysomethings, and has been described by the director (when pushed) as "Before Sunset meets Do the Right Thing… with a dash of French New Wave to sweeten the pot." It's a warm-hearted, witty romantic drama with a great indie soundtack, which also succeeds in raising questions about the relationship between race...
