On this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie, I finally get to sit down with Deragh Campbell, one of Canada’s sharpest and most gifted actors — and a hell of a film theorist in her own right. She’s great in pretty much everything, and if you caught Anne at 13,000 Ft. at TIFF last month you saw one of the year’s best performances, full stop.
Deragh’s also been playing Sofia Bohdanowicz’s alter ego on an unofficial series of features and shorts, the latest of which, MS Slavic 7, opens this Thursday at the Lightbox. And that gave us an opportunity to do the podcast together.
Deragh picked Les Rendez-vous d’Anna, a film that MS Slavic 7 deliberately echoes more than once. Which makes sense, because Chantal Akerman has always been a clear influence on Sofia’s filmmaking, and Deragh obviously loves her work just as much. It’s a quieter episode than usual, both because of the selection and the guest, so just turn up the volume a little and give us your full attention. I think it’s worth it.
