SXSW 2010 Video Interview: Director Miguel Sapochnik (REPO MEN)

This year, during SXSW, I got the opportunity to speak with Miguel Sapochnik. His film REPO MEN opened this weekend in theaters nationwide. Though he started out in the Art Department, he's since graduated to directing, beginning with THE DREAMER (2000), a short film about "a haggard military Clone [awaiting] his fate in a grim termination plant." REPO MEN continues the science fiction theme, telling a story about a future where new artificial organs can be bought for a steep price.

In the interview we discussed everything from art to health care, but the most interesting part for me was talking about his desire to direct a Spanish-language film (despite his very British accent, Sapochnik is fluent in Spanish because of his Argentinian heritage). See the full video interview after the jump.
