Interview with SFFS Artist in Residence Sebastian Silva

Sebastian Silva calls his two latest films "evil twins": CRYSTAL FAIRY is a feel-good story shot while Silva and his lead actor, Michael Cera, waited for funding to come through on the darker MAGIC MAGIC. He brought CRYSTAL FAIRY to the 56th San Francisco International Film Festival last year and returned to San Francisco this year as SFFS Artist in Residence to present MAGIC MAGIC. In this in-depth interview covering both films, Silva talks about encouraging his actors to improvise, breaking the rules of American film making, and nurturing a creative vision.
