Included in Filmmaker Magazine’s 2007 25 New Faces of Independent Film list, director Andy Blubaugh has made a name for himself with a personalised documentary filmmaking style. He joins us to discuss his debut feature, and probably most personal and provocative film to date, the fiction/documentary hybrid The Adults in the Room.
The Adults in the Room – Andy Blubaugh (2010)
A hybrid documentary film that explores director Andy Blubaugh’s relationship during his teen years with a man twice his age while examining the man he has become in the years since through the production of a narrative film about those events.
This film inspires a lot of oversharing on the part of the audience […] it’s actually very sweet that people feel compelled to open up.
