Interview: Brit Marling & Ellen Page

We sit down with writer and actress Brit Marling and Canada's own Ellen Page to talk about their work on the new thriller The East, the importance of a strong sense of family, how much preparation went into to playing anarchists, the semantics behind dumpster diving, the best way to make a subversive narrative, and the real inspiration behind some of the ideas shared in the film.
