Film Society's Marian Masone sat down with "Tower" producer Dan Montgomery and director Kazik Radwanski to talk about the surreal nature of the film and impulse in shooting.
About the film:
For his feature debut, Kazik Radwanski has opted to train his camera with great intensity and control on a character who utterly lacks a center or direction, even an identity. In his mid-thirties yet still living at home with his parents, Derek (Derek Bogart) struggles to make a small animation about a green creature building rock towers. He can't maintain any real friendships, let alone romantic involvements, until he encounters Nicole (Nicole Fairbairn), who offers a glint of promise. Radwanski's single-minded vision suggests filmmaking of uncommon discipline combined with unmistakable empathy.
