Michael Glover Smith interviews “The Love Witch” filmmaker Anna Biller for TimeOut Chicago


When I reviewed Anna Biller’s The Love Witch when it first opened at the Gene Siskel Film Center last year, I called it the year’s “most singular independent feature.” Many of the film’s initial screenings were sold out, so the Siskel has thankfully brought it back for another weeklong run beginning today. The timing is perfect: Biller was recently named the winner of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle’s first annual Trailblazer award for “pushing the boundaries of the medium in terms of form and content.” I recently spoke to Biller about her unique movie, her influences and her penchant for shooting on film.
