Films I wish I had made

I LOVE documentaries, most recently blown away by Only The Young, Searching for Sugarman and Vivan Las Antipodas. I love interactive doc work: Hollow, Alma, Bear 71, Welcome to Pine Point. Also love: Out of Africa (can't help myself), Andrew Haigh's Weekend, Samson and Delilah, Shortbus, The Oath, Enjoy Poverty! Fast Cheap and Out of Control, Together, Once Upon A Time In The West, The Lives of Others, Munyurangabo.

I cried watching

Any sappy film where animals get lost and have to find their way home despite nearly drowning and being chased by rabid wolves and large bears

I left the cinema during

I can't leave DURING a film even if it's so bad it leaves me depressed for weeks

Directors I love

Errol Morris, Lukas Moodysson, Werner Herzog. Hang on, why are these all men? Kim Longinotto, Laura Poitras and all the other women kicking documentary butt.

Actors I admire

Donald Sutherland (oh my god, have you seen him in Fellini's Cassanova? Unbelievable!), Peter Sarsgaard (he's so dreamy), Meryl Streep (Out of Africa is one of my guilty pleasures, I love every overblown minute of it)

Writers I respect

Charlie Kaufman, Ben Hecht, Lena Dunham

My desert island discs

You Are The Generation That Bought More Shoes and You Get What You Deserve

Books I have given my friends

The Gift, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, What is the What, Mukiwa, Don't Let's Go to The Dogs Tonight, Long Walk to Freedom, What A Carve Up, Foucault for Beginners (ha!), 28 Stories of AIDS in Africa, Midlands, Pride and Prejudice

My death row meal

Haribo Sour Mix and Tattinger Champagne

The best thing I own

My dad's old Super8 camera, a steely will in the face of insurmountable obstacles

More about me

I love documentaries. I love independent films. I love short films. I love South Africa. I love making things and pulling things apart. I love Meerkats. I love cheese. I love tequila, whisky, red wine and beer but not necessarily in that order because that would be bad. I want a pair of moon boots and to live forever.
