Video Interview with Kate Erbe from Sundance


From Moving Pictures Magazine - a 10-minute video interview with Kathryn Erbe, director Eric Mendelsohn and Danai Gurira.

Movie: 3 Backyards
Directed/Written by: Eric Mendelsohn
Starring: Embeth Davidtz, Edie Falco, Elias Koteas, Kathryn Erbe, Danai Gurira

Interview by Elliot V. Kotek
Videography by F.J.Productions
(from the 2010 Sundance Film Festival)

Writer/director Eric Mendelsohn and actors Kathryn Erbe and Danai Gurira chat about what drew them toward the story in the film “3 Backyards.” Mendelsohn and Erbe also shed light on what the atmosphere on set was like for this small production and the unusual challenge of editing in a house and not in a traditional editing facility. Coming from television’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” Erbe differentiates her experience on “3 Backyards” and explains how it was a welcomed change of pace. The three muse about whether or not art is a form of therapy for them and how this notion gets turned on its head in their film. Gurira describes what it was about her character that drew her to the script. On the other hand, Mendelsohn explains what it is like to release control of his script to his actors and trust other people with the characters he birthed.
