Interview: Patrick Read Johnson

Dork Shelf talks to Patrick Read Johnson about his long in the works autobiographical film 5-25-77 and it's long road to the big screen despite being a small film about how he got started as a filmmaker growing up in small town Illinois. Johnson opens up about growing disillusioned with the studio system (working with John Hughes on Baby's Day Out, turning down the chance to do Home Alone, and the troubled post production on Angus), the good along the way, and bringing his work-in-progress film to the TIFF Next Wave Festival this weekend.
