Cherien Dabis talks about casting herself, the difficult shoot

The writer/director and now actress talks about how she managed to bring out the most delicate of cultural contradictions amidst a difficult shoot, the role of men in a film that spends most of its time with women, and where she's going next. .html


Thank you for posting that link. Interesting interview.

What catches my eye the most was this blurb from her:

I’m working on a bigger budget American romantic comedy right now that’s fully English language and it’s very different than anything I’ve done before, but then I’m also working on a Palestine-based drama that entirely takes place in West Bank and Israel proper and all Arabic language, so they’re two very different projects.

I loved "May In the Summer" and can only hope we'll get to see these new films at some point.
