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?
3. How would you describe your film in two words!?
-Punk heartache… although I recognize “heartache” is a compound word.
