Uncle John was one of my favorite films from SXSW this year, as is not-so-subtly hinted at in my review of the film, because of the film’s invitation to explore its characters. And what better way is there to discuss a film than meeting with its writers, directors, and lead actor? Just a short period of time before Uncle John‘s premiere at SXSW on March 16th, I sat down with the film’s co-writers and co-directors Steven Piet and Erik Crary, as well as Uncle John himself, John Ashton. Read on as we discuss the film’s story structure, inspirations, and more!
