ON FILM: X/Y
Charles talks with actor, producer, director, and writer (and El Paso native) Ryan Piers Williams about his new project X/Y, which tells the story of a group of friends in New York who are struggling with making deep connections in their relationships. Ryan explains why his films tackle contemporary issues in a socially-interconnected world. In this online-only expanded interview, Ryan explains why the characters in X/Y develop self-destructive behaviors as a substitute for affection and physical connection. He also talks about why his films are not necessarily autobiographical, that they are instead inspired by what he directly observes. Follow X/Y on Twitter https://twitter.com/xymovie.
X/Y screens Sat. Aug 16 at 9:30pm at the Plaza Classic Film Festival. Ryan will also be available for a free brunch on Sun. Aug 17 at 11am at the Plaza Classic. More details at http://plazaclassic.com/
