Ingrid Veninger's debut feature at last year's Toronto International Film Festival was Modra, a charming, coming of age story about a girl's trip to her parent's homeland. Modra was noteable for it's small budget, small crew, authentic tone and the fact that Veninger cast her own daughter for the film's heroine. Sticking to that theme, Veninger made her latest film, i am a good person / i am a bad person, a mother-daughter affiar.
Again working with a shoe-string budget and once again globe-hopping, this time to London, Paris and Germany, Veninger plays a filmmaker touring her movie at film festivals in Europe, while her daughter (played by Hallie Switzer) does some exploring on her own in Paris.
Press+1 caught up with Veninger during the Toronto International Film Festival where i am a good person / i am a bad person premiered last month, and we asked her about making films on a budget, and where the fine line lies between her real life and her reel life.
