We have another amazing Australian director calling in this week. Natalie Erika James is on the program to talk about Park Chan-wook’s vampire classic, Thirst. She also discusses her newest film, the Sundance hit, Relic. Natalie reveals that after production wrapped, she was surprised to learn from her actors that she was a demanding director when it came to performances. She talks about how she created the sensation of being trapped in her film Relic. And she elaborates on the importance of realistic reactions in horror films.
You can watch Relic on VOD on July 3rd.
If you haven’t seen Thirst…get on it!
AND, if you want to check out April’s Staff Pick – watch Lee Kyoung-mi’s The Truth Beneath
