The Wrap-Up from Down Under

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

The biggest newspaper in Melbourne, Australia recently profiled one of the biggest docs of 2009 — us :) .   Check out the article on Ondi Timoner and WE LIVE IN PUBLIC in The Age, printed to coincide with our screenings at the Melbourne Film Festival.


We had so much fun in Oz, we sold out our screening and made a bunch of friends Down Under to boot.  Melbourne was a really cool city overall + above all, the people are proud of their food, bars and general good taste.  Given the film’s warm reception by the Melbourners, we aren’t going to argue with them.

Some Melbourne fauna (zoo variety)


And check out yet another New Zealand blog about WE LIVE IN PUBLIC —
Despite some technical issues at our second Kiwi screening, the packed crowd patiently waited out the problems and we had a lively Q+A that wouldn’t quit — we had to move the whole crowd over to a nearby bar to continue the discussion!

Bitch Magazine on Women in Film

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

WE LIVE IN PUBLIC director Ondi Timoner gets a mention on Bitch Magazine’s website in a post about female film directors.   At a time when women are making incredible headway in so many areas that were once boys clubs, film directing still seems to be overwhelmingly dominated by dudes.   Here are a few more women in film that are good friends of ours, insanely talented and that Bitch Magazine didn’t include:

Amy Berg won the Oscar for DELIVER US FROM EVIL.
Marina Zenovich — POLANSKI
Margaret Brown — THE ORDER OF MYTHS

Ondi says, “We’re all out there exploring the world and blazing our own trails, but when we do connect with other female filmmakers I feel like I’m meeting members of my own tribe and it’s great.”  We love seeing women making cool art — rock on!

We Live In Melbourne

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is back in Australia, this time for the Melbourne International Film Festival.  The Kiwis set a high benchmark for general hospitality and charm but Melbourne has proven to be a compelling stop so far with a very different pace and its own selling points.  For instance… this guy!

Our favorite Melbourne bartender

Our favorite Melbourne bartender

He took good care of us at Madame Brussels bar, where the bartenders wear their tennis whites and every day is a garden party replete with Grandma’s patio furniture and liberal use of Pimm’s.  We flipped!  And then got it together to invite this hot toddy master to our FIRST MELBOURNE SCREENING:

Wednesday July 29th @ ACMI2

Post-screening Q+A with Ondi to follow

The food in Australia is amazing and while the people here actually let us occasionally pay for stuff (unlike in New Zealand where you’d have to punch someone unconscious to pick up a check) we are being shown great hospitality and look forward to some sightseeing tomorrow with Jean Yves, Rwandan architect, and Paul Wiegard from Madman Entertainment on Thursday.   We are sure to see some koalas and native fauna, but we are also hoping for some more nutball bar and restaurant discoveries amid the buzz of the film festival.  Rock!

We’re Heading To Europe After a Homerun In LA

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Hi from Interloper Films…

WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is headed for our European premiere this at the prestigious Karlovy Vary festival just outside of Prague. Not only is this an amazing event in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but it’s also marks the first time our documentary will be in official competition since we won Sundance in January 2009. We are hoping for another big win :)

Director Ondi Timoner will be in attendance to support the film and have post-screening Q+As.

Screening times:

July 9 Čas Cinema 18:30

July 10 Panasonic Cinema 13:00

From Prague, she heads to London to do long-lead press for our upcoming ***theatrical release*** through the most innovative distribution company in the UK, Dogwoof. Our theatrical run will kick off at the London Film Festival in mid-October.

We are coming off of our incredible LA premiere at the LAFF — both screenings were oversold out, the buzz continues + the stars are aligned for WE LIVE IN PUBLIC… quite literally. Check it out.

Hey Hollywood… thanks for coming out + see you at the theatrical
(details below)!

If you missed it or just want to walk down memory lane with us, check
out the intro to our LA premiere
. We had an interrogation booth on-hand at the afterparties of both the LA and NYC premieres, and we’ve posted some of the highly entertaining results online.

Here’s what the LA press had to say about it:

LA Weekly “CRITIC’S PICK WE LIVE IN PUBLIC (USA) Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, director Ondi Timoner’s remarkable documentary follows obsessive self-documenter Josh Harris on his decadelong odyssey from multimillionaire Internet pioneer and Manhattan art-world cause célèbre to bankrupt (financially and emotionally), mentally unhinged exile…”

Premium Hollywood “the most newsworthy film I’ll see at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and maybe anywhere else for a while…”

LAToday “The film has already won a Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and played to an over-sold out audience at the LA premiere at the LA Film Festival on Sunday night, which included Billy Idol and Brandon Boyd (Incubus) and actors Adrian Grenier and Eliza Dushku. Twitterholic celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are also already big fans, and you’ll no doubt soon follow.”

All of this has spurred us on to prepare here at home for our US theatrical roll-out, when WE LIVE IN PUBLIC hits NY at the IFC center on Aug. 28th and Los Angeles on Sept. 25th. San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Austin, Portland and other cities will be added soon. We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this to you, the public. Rock!
