JK: You’ve talked about selecting the “right stranger” for your interviews. How do you go about defining and selecting the right stranger? BS: We did a whole bunch of interviews in Washington Square Park in New York City, and that was a case of just looking at people. In that park there are tons of people who are just walking by all the time; it was a case of figuring out who was approachable. I didn’t go about it with anything particular in mind. It was more about picking someone who looks like they’re not going to get angry if I approach them.

The Hubleys [John and Faith] were great models for me. In their film Everybody Rides the Carousel, the child growing up has anger growing inside, and the anger becomes a lion coming out of the child’s mouth. What a great image! I would suggest many ideas (which weren’t used) to the producers of the child abuse film, for example how a child might become a tornado of anger, or become a bowling ball and knock over the pins of people who were abusing them. 11 Idea sketches for fistfight and gunshot scene (Scene 2).
