Matthew Toffolo's Summary

THE LOVE SONGS OF OEDIPUS REX, 21min., Canada, Documentary
Directed by Luke Sargent
Documentary about musician Benjamin Hackman (The Holy Gasp) processing personal loss and heartbreak, through creating a massive concept album.

Get to know the filmmaker:

1. What motivated you to make this film?

-I think the motivation was fairly spontaneous. I’m familiar with Benjamin and The Holy Gasp, and he’d asked me to do some behind the scenes recordings of their album. I didn’t want to do that, but I’d asked what the album was about, and he told me. I was like “This isn’t a behind the scenes thing, this is more like a documentary!”

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

-16+ months

3. How would you describe your film in two words!?

-Punk heartache… although I recognize “heartache” is a compound word.
