With the excellent horror film CARGO opening today in theaters in Australia and on Netflix in the rest of the world I wanted to share the interview I did with directors Ben Howling, Yolanda Ramke and producer Kristina Ceyton. The interview took place one day short of one month ago when the film was playing at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was one of the coolest things I’ve done. I say that because everyone were so absolutely delightful I never wanted it to end. I think you’ll like it.
Before I turn you over to the interview I have to give you a couple of quick notes.
First thing you need to know is that the video was made because my audio recorder went on the fritz as I was setting up to do the interview. As a result I had to resort to my back up and use the video recorder. When I set everything up everyone was in the frame and then everyone shifted in their seats and Ben and Kristina drifted out of the frame. It really doesn’t make a great deal of difference since we simply talk. Additionally this is everything, unedited from start to finish
The other thing you need to know is that this is a VERY spoiler filled discussion. From the second question on we are talking about what happens, who lives and who dies and all sorts of other things relating to the film. If you don’t want to know then do not watch this video until after you see the film. If you haven’t seen the film then go watch it then come back and watch this.
Lastly, this is a spoiler filled discussion. I know I just said it but I don’t want to be accused of ruining things if you haven’t seen it.
