Jenny Slate, Gillian Robespierre, and Gabe Liedman discuss their “choice” comedy Obvious Child at New Directors/New Films. Opens June 6!
Hubert Sauper: But there were moments when I remember thinking, “What the fuck am I doing here?” When we filmed the [American Christian] missionaries, I was at a point of total despair. These guys plowed into these villages because they were kind of at home, because these were their savages to whom they distributed these white socks.
Eric Hynes: Blaring white tennis socks on otherwise naked black children.
Hubert Sauper: People thought we were also missionaries, but you can’t say: “I’m not a missionary, I’m a nice guy.” Because I’m not—I’m the same, with the same kind of face.
