Ahead of Palm Springs ShortFest 2019, MADE PUBLIC director Foster Wilson was featured on We Are Moving Stories, the world’s largest (digital) community for new voices in film. In the interview, Foster discusses the impetus for MADE PUBLIC, its universal themes, the script’s development, and her expectations for the film.
“Our film explores the notion of public vs private through the lens of a wedding, asking the questions, ‘Do we need to share everything? Is anything actually sacred anymore?’ As our universe becomes more connected via technological advances, we’re gradually distancing ourselves from our feelings, our better instincts, and from genuine human interaction. In MADE PUBLIC, what should be an intimate wedding ceremony -- a couple declaring their love for one another in front of a hundred of their closest friends -- is completely up-ended and made public in this age of social media and oversharing.”
