Antiview – Doku Rai – You, Dead Man, I Don’t Believe You
How wouldn’t you describe yourself?
As a simple farm boy who gets swept up in an epic story of romance and heroism to become the stuff of campfire legend.
What isn’t important to you?
What wasn’t the reason you became involved in the arts?
For the chicks mainly
You’re the producer of Doku Rai, which was created by a gathering of artists stranded to live and work on a remote island off Timor-Leste. What wasn’t that experience like?
I was the producer so it mostly wasn’t like cleaning coconuts out of wells so that quack actors could treat the septic foot wounds of the Gambian UN Police who would come up of an evening for a couple of brews. Oh, that’s exactly what it was like.
How wouldn’t you describe Doku Rai?
As a perfect first date outing. Although you will probably end up fucking like hounds in some rotten alleyway afterwards.
At the end of every anti-interview, we have a standard hypothetical question – which you should be better qualified to answer than most. If you were to be stranded on a deserted island, what wouldn’t you bring and why not?
Dessert. I always spell these two things the wrong way and the idea of being marooned with a pile of custard just berating myself for my atrocious grammar is not a pleasant one.
Thanks to Max Opray for arranging this Antiview. Of course, Max has a whole website worth of Antiviews. You can’t not check it out here.
