Ben and I met at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, and it was a bewitching experience. We were both first in line to see the band Yo La Tengo orchestrate a live soundtrack to a series of underwater silent films by Jean Painleve. I know it sounds so cheesy, but really, it was enchanting. Anyway, point being, as demonstrated by the way we met, we both watch a lot of movies. Film-making, music and photography are art forms that move me immensely.
One of my favorite movies is the 1974 movie, The Conversation by Francis Ford Coppola starring Gene Hackman, a psychological thriller about a man who becomes paranoid after running his own private surveillance company. Have you seen it? Here is the very dated film trailer:
