From June 19, 2022
While editing Rescue Me, I watched the footage for endless hours. There was over 125 hours of material. I knew every inch of footage by heart. Yet for a long time, I had no idea how to organize the material into a story. Now, after watching the finished film four or five times, I am trying to understand how the film came to be the film it is. It never started out to be so long, so deep, so emotionally and spiritually charged. How did it happen?
