“Wes’s World” will also include showings of films by François Truffaut, Jacques Cousteau, Werner Herzog, Jean Renoir and Hal Ashby, among others.

Check out the program’s trailer below.  The full lineup can be found here, on the Northwest Film Center’s website.

The Guardian’s Interview of Wes

The Guardian has a nice interview with Wes regarding his style, his critical reception, working with children, and his frequent collaborators. Regarding the last, he says:

“I don’t think any of us are considered ‘normal’ people,” he says. “It’s probably more a family of crazy uncles. But there’s an energy that comes from people who are friends. Whatever chemistry is on set is going to be there in the movie, and you want some electricity that you don’t really control.”

The rest of the interview can be read over at The Guardian.
