Exclusive With The Impossible Director Juan Bayona

Having the chance to see the movie The Impossible first hand during the Chicago Film Festival, I felt honored to have the chance to speak to  Juan Bayona, the director of the newly released film starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts.

The film tells a heartfelt account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. My enjoyment of the film stemmed from the extraordinary effects to the hidden deeper meaning the film left the audience. Juan spoke to me about  why it was important for him to tell this story, how he recreated some of the scenes, and what he wants the audience to take from the film.
