[SXSW Interview] RKSS (Writers/Directors of Turbo Kid)

Video by Elijah Alvarado.

If you missed my review of Turbo Kid, I highly recommend reading that soon. It was, hands down, my favorite film out of SXSW 2015, and one I’ll have no problem championing and supporting in the upcoming months as it begins to play across the rest of the country. It’s been such a long while since a film’s hype and buzz was lived up to, making Turbo Kid that much more enjoyable.

During SXSW, we had the chance to sit down with Yoann-Karl Whissell, Anouk Whissell, and Francois Simard, the writers and directors behind Turbo Kid that collectively go by the name RKSS (short for Roadkill Superstar). Watch our video interview where we discuss the influences behind the film, the struggle to make Turbo Kid tonally sound, and more!
