We bring our series of London Film Festival interviews to a close for another year with filmmaker and fellow curator Jason B Kohl’s short The Slaughter. Jason joins us to discuss how he approached the fractious father/son relationship which provides the meat of The Slaughter’s dramatic conflict, whilst also tackling the strangely abstract distance the majority of us have from the food we eat.
The Slaughter (2013)
A pig farmer tests his unemployed son’s resolve to join the family business.
I find that as a short filmmaker especially & as a filmmaker in general you can only pick a couple of battles per project.
