Inside the Mind of Frownland’s Ronald Bronstein
Filmmaker Ronald Bronstein says it all: Frownland is “both an overripe tomato lobbed with spazmo inaccuracy at the spotless surface of the silver screen and a mad valentine to the craggy tradition of unadulterated cheap-o, ultra-independent expression.”
Bronstein brought Frownland to the 30th Starz Denver Film Festival on the heels of winning a special jury award from this year’s SXSW Film Festival and a nod from Filmmaker, which named Bronstein among its “25 New Faces of Independent Film.”
Noted film critic Robert Denerstein had a chance to discuss Frownland with Bronstein, who gave his characteristically candid view of the dark side of interpersonal relationships, the struggles of a young filmmaker, and the state of independent film.
