Bradley Rust Gray “Jack & Diane”

Interviewed American independent film director Bradley Rust Gray for my filmmakers’ portrait series.

I met him at this year’s TriBeCa Film Festival but the article was on hold because of his new film “Jack & Diane“‘s opening day.

In the interview, his energy changed when I asked him about anger. I really like when filmmakers go like “Uh… I don’t know…,” then they start to speak about something they didn’t prepare for interviews.

Brad was living in Japan before. We talked about Japan after our interview for a bit.

His wife So Yong Kim’s portrait interview was published in September. It might be interesting to see their contrast and commonness by reading both portrait interviews.

The article is on COOL Magazine.
