Zack Parker's harrowing thriller Proxy has its last festival screening tonight.

See the poster and a behind the scenes video, here. And Parker talks with the Vanguard Blog's Sasha James:

SJ: Your 2011 film, SCALENE, and PROXY both deal with women recovering from grief after a vicious attack. Do you feel like female grief and retribution are underplayed in film? 

ZP: I think I just feel that women are more fascinating to watch. They seem to be able to portray a complexity and depth of emotion that you just don't typically see in men. 
I actually have three children and have been a stay-at-home dad for over eight years, so, I've been around a lot of young mothers at playgroups, birthday parties, etc. I should also mention that my writing partner Kevin Donner has been a stay-at-home dad for six years. So, we are both kind of immersed in this world of women, observing how they talk about their children, their lives, their husbands, each other. Proxy is basically a warped perspective of that world, greatly magnified and filtered through two damaged minds.

  1. If unhappy things could be filtered like CCProxy filter function on, once set the rules, it cannot be accessed. The world may have more happiness.
