Korine’s interview can be read below. You can view the other interviews and more including the trailer here at GrolschFilmWorks.com
Grolsch: Why did you decide to take part in the first film from Grolsch Film Works?
Korine: I was really excited to make a film with Grolsch Film Works. It was a great chance to experiment and make something amazing. The idea of these three films working together under one central idea is great. I think it’s turned out really nice.
What is your fourth dimension”?
A place where humans and dogs have children. Everyone just barks at each other and everyone has a leash around their necks with a telephone number to call in case they’re lost. In the fourth dimension everyone is man’s best friend.
Grolsch is a brand who is taking film seriously. What do you think about commercial companies taking the role of studios?
I think it’s a great. It’s a new world where beautiful images are constantly falling from the sky. Grolsch is doing a good thing with this. It’s great any time anyone helps make a movie. I see nothing but good in this. It’s my first experience and it’s been a great one so far.
What was your source of inspiration when writing the script for the U.S. chapter of this film?
A guy I knew who used to have arguments with his shoe. He was amazing. He was always trying to give his shoe good advice. Once he fell asleep on the train and someone stole his shoes off his feet. He was never the same after that.
This film has a long monologue. Why is that? Was it hard to write?
No, it was easy to write. He is a motivational speaker. I always thought that would be a great job. The advice given in the mono- logue is pure and wonderful. If you follow it, then many great things will happen. This was all advice my father had given me.
Are there any little hints and nuances in the background of the film we should look out for?
Cotton candy. Look out for the cotton candy. It’s very easy to get stuck in it.
What advice would you give budding independent filmmakers?
Love it all. Light it up. Never quit.
