Double SXSW award winner Eric Byler, director of AMERICANese, on Crash, racial conflicts & film

Eric Byler's new film "AMERICANese", a drama about a romantic relationship, recently won the Narrative Feature Audience Award and a Special Jury Award for Outstanding Ensemble Cast at SXSW '06. In an article at The Austin Chronicle, Byler is quoted as saying:

"In AMERICANese, you're actually looking at how people of color cope with the issue in real life, not the way that it's dramatized in the movies."

"Crash is a really good example [of that]," he continues. "Ever since [The] Birth of a Nation, it's always been racial conflict erupting in violence. For a person of color, you don't need to have somebody hanging upside down by a seat belt about to catch on fire to conclude that racism is bad."

Read the entire article here. Thanks GreenCine Daily for the link.

Here's the blog for AMERICANese, looks like Byler has written all the entries so far.

Of course Byler, who is half Asian-Am, half-Euro-Am aka "white", being included at SXSW will keep me from complaining about the possible existence of a "soft" segregation at the larger US indie film festivals & the overall liberal indie media/art scenes for ummm, let's see, at least a week I think :)

Rock on Byler & team AMERICANese & SXSW. Looking forward to checkin' out that flick.
