This is a live Q&A session that followed our screening of Slums of Beverly Hillson April 24, 2013(part of our 2 Good 2B 4Gotten series).
Star Natasha Lyonne, director/writer Tamara Jenkins, co-star Kevin Corrigan and cinematographer Tom Richmond joined us to reminisce about the highs and lows of making a picture that was, and still feels, very personal to them all. Hearing this conversation is like eavesdropping on a family reunion.
Tamara talks about some of the struggles of being a female filmmaker (and why "women in film" panels aren't all they're cracked up to be), while Natasha, expresses how being Tamara's stand-in for Slums made her feel about her future.
Plus: Auditioning breast doubles, filming the vibrator dance scene, and learning how to fake an orgasm on camera.
Whether you've never seen the movie or sleep with a VHS of it under your pillow, this is a conversation all indie film lovers will enjoy.
