FILMMAKER SUJATA DAY JOINS FILM CRITIC KATIE WALSH
"I was SO happy when @sujataday chose the delightfully bonkers De Palma joint SISTERS for @SwitchbladePod," film critic Katie Walsh tweeted today. Walsh and filmmaker Sujata Day have a lot of fun discussing Sisters on the latest episode of the podcast Switchblade Sisters. Here are the podcast's episode notes:
We are joined by the multi-hyphenate, uber-talented writer, actor, director, producer Sujata Day. You may know her best from her role as Sarah on Insecure. But she also recently wrote, directed, and starred in her debut feature Definition Please, about a former spelling bee champion who must reconcile with her family and her past. She joins Katie Walsh to discuss Brian De Palma’s severely underrated Sisters. Katie and Sujata gush over the “bonkers” quality of the film. But Sujata goes further and points to De Palma’s use of split-screens and imaginative filmmaking techniques that directly inspired her work. Sujata also discusses scrappy filmmaking (she shot her film in two weeks), utilizing Indian music, and having complete creative control over low-budget projects.
