Cloudburst interviews [video]

Cloudburst’s Olympia Dukakis and Thom Fitzgerald.

Last summer we had the pleasure of having Renée Olbert interview both Academy Award winning actor Olympia Dukakis and acclaimed director Thom Fitzgerald about their latest collaboration, the Lesbian road movie Cloudburst.

Cloudburst is opening across the country this week (check your local listing for details), so it’s a fitting time to share these great interviews with you.

Olympia Dukakis talks about her special bond with co-star Brenda Fricker, her trust in director Thom Fitzgerald, and of course dildos!

Thom Fitzgerald talks about writing the outsider, marriage and wonderful Nova Scotia.

If you didn’t get a chance to read our review of Cloudburst when it screened at the Toronto Inside Out Film Fest, you can find it here.

    Cheryl G – Olympia was so amazing with us, she really loved the fact that we were all women crew and she loved Renee’s enthusiasm (and really who doesn’t love Renee’s enthusiasm).
