Name of my film/program: The Birds Upstairs/Student Prints
City: New York City
My film, eight words or less: Infertility overwhelms the lives
of an aristocratic avian couple.
Favorite comedy: Happiness (Todd Solondz)
Favorite documentary: Tokyo-Ga (Wim Wenders)
Favorite drama: Andrei Rublev (Andrei Tarkovsky)
Key moment during the marking of your film: Shooting the scenes
with the “live” baby bird against a blue screen proved to be some of the
most enjoyable to execute—he kept escaping!
