I spoke w/ Caveh Zahedi, director of the film "I Am A Sex Addict", in mid-November when he came to Silver Spring to show the movie. A few days ago he won a Gotham Award. I asked him about how it felt to win the award. Here's the question and the answer:
SUJEWA: Caveh, how do you feel about winning the IFP/Filmmaker presented "Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You" Gotham Award?
CAVEH: It feels great. The Awards Ceremony was a lot of fun, and it's wonderful to be recognized for your work, but the high only lasts a few days, and then you have to win another award...
