– Interviews of Hanna Laslo, Hiam Abbass and Natalie Portman
Three interconnected interviews. Natalie talks about her interest in being in the film, how she loved all the places they filmed in, and how it was a completely different way of working than she was used to. There’s an interesting moment towards the end, when Natalie is replying to one of the interviewer’s questions and there is suddenly a power outage of some sort. The camera lingers on Nat as she waits.
The annoying lingering cross-fades that are all over the film are
unfortunately also part of the interviews.

A: Not really, but I knew that she was a good person and very talented and focused on being somebody.
