Quinceañera and Brothers of the Head -- two very different indie films, each directed by two directors, who happen to also be long-term gay partners -- opened in wide release last weekend. So LA Weekly's Chuck Wilson had a great idea: Why not get the directors of each film to see the other one, and then bring them all together to talk about their films and what it's like being gay partners making a movie together?
The answers to the latter question are pretty much what you'd expect: It's a lot like the experience of a straight couple making a film together -- shocking but true. Yes, gay couples and straight couples really aren't that different when it comes to the basic dynamics. Nonetheless, the interview was a clever idea, and the end result is pretty fun to read. As for which of the two films the directors would recommend you go see? Both, naturally.
