On today's show, I talk to writer and director Gillian Robespierre. A New
York native, Gillian grew up in Stuyvesant Town in Manhattan. Her
father made films for many years, and that, as well as a number of
other reasons, drew Gillian to become a filmmaker herself. In 2009,
she made a short called Obvious Child, which she
then expanded into a feature-length film starring Jenny Slate. This
debuted earlier this year at Sundance, where it garnered the Red
Crown Producer's Award, and since its wide release, it's garnered
both critical and popular accolades. Not only that, but just this
week, it was released on DVD!
