Good old Marjorie Conrad. Hadn’t seen her in absolute AGES. The former America’s Next Top Model-turned-WOW receptionist-turned-indie filmmaker returned to her old stomping grounds to talk about her upcoming SLAMDANCE feature Chemical Cut. The movie – which she wrote, directed, produced, and starred in – follows the story of a young misfit model who struggles to define herself in the nutty world of modeling, until a mysterious woman’s performance strikes her imagination. So it’s how you can find inspiration in absurdity, see. And the chemical cut of the title refers to when you bleach your hair and it melts off, which, it turns out, is a metaphor for the fashion industry as a whole, see, because… well, just watch the interview below.
Chemical Cut premieres this week at the Slamdance Festival in Utah, and other film festivals thereafter.
