Director, Stephen Cone, on Cosmic Dealings and His Profoundly Moving Film, The Wise Kids.

This week’s audio podcast from features indie filmmaker, Stephen Cone, the Director of The Wise Kids and most recently Black Box, which is currently in post-production.

I was lucky enough to get to watch The Wise Kids before interviewing Stephen, and it made me cry–unexpectedly, because the film was so pure, and profoundly moving. I highly recommend everyone in the universe watching it once it gets distribution. (Stephen is hopefully making a decision soon.)

I basically just told Stephen he was amazing during the entire interview, because I loved his film so much, which is probably the most annoying thing you’ve ever heard, but  we did have an amazing conversation about the importance of working well with actors, and about Stephen’s cinephile past in which his film knowledge took hold at 6 years old and just grew from there.

Stephen shared his favorite films and filmmakers which include many French filmmakers like Claire Denis and the quinessential American independent, John Cassavetes.
