First-time co-writers Brit Marling and Mike Cahill have been getting a lot of buzz recently for their new film ANOTHER EARTH. A story of a young girl, played by Marling, whose life changes the night a duplicate earth is discovered in the night skies. What follows is a year of sadness and self-awareness as Rhoda attempts to atone for her past. Marling and Cahill sat down with me to talk about the anticipation of meeting oneself, creating a strong yet flawed heroine, and why they chose to make ANOTHER EARTH themselves.

ANOTHER EARTH is out in select theaters Friday, August 5th. Check out the video interview after the break.
