Cinema East 2011 | Austin, TX
By Don Simpson | August 15, 2012
We sat down with Lawrence Levine and Sophia Takal to chat about their film Gabi on the Roof in July on the front porch of The French Legation on a sweltering August evening. It has been almost a year since we shot this video interview (the day before its screening at Cinema East 2011), but we have been waiting for the perfect time to post it. Well, that time has finally come because Gabi on the Roof in July is now available on hulu.com to stream for FREE!
Gabi on the Roof in July spirals into an intriguingly passive psychoanalysis of human relationships. Writer-director Lawrence Levine never casts judgment on his characters, instead the audience is left to derive their own conclusions based upon each individual viewer’s personal history and sense of morality. Film critics are left to these very same devices, rendering them powerless to derive any absolute judgments about the characters in Gabi on the Roof in July — analysis of Gabi on the Roof in July is better suited for psychiatrists than film critics anyway.
