Our local hero in New York

National film treasure Bill Forsyth was in New York last week for a rare screening (part of a mini-retrospective at the famous indie cinema Film Forum) of the excellent Housekeeping and thanks to the wonders of New York’s flagship Public Radio station you can hear his interview with talkshow host Leonard Lopate here.   Amongst his musings Bill reflects on the irony that it was only after Gregory’s Girl opened in London that people in Scotland began flocking to see it (wouldn’t it be nice to think that things have changed…) and that he is currently working on a Scottish-set script with that  other great Scottish export, producer Iain Smith.    The pair first collaborated on Local Hero back in 1983 but whereas Bill’s Hollywood adventure proved to be a painful experience, Smith has gone from blockbuster to blockbuster and is currently in post-production on the A-Team.
