So much of the way I presently watch and think about avant-garde cinema was shaped by the decade-plus that I've been reading Michael Sicinski's criticism, so it was a tremendous honour and privilege that I got to have a long conversation with him about my work last month, right after PROTOTYPE's US premiere at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival (which he helped make happen). That conversation is now readable online here, published in Cinema Scope magazine (speaking of institutions that have enormously shaped my movie-watching sensibilities). I designed PROTOTYPE to function sans context (indeed, the movie is largely about the disappearance of context), but it's easily the movie I've made that I have the most fun rambling on about. Hopefully there are some enlightening nuggets in there.
