Michael Fox interviews director William Farley about his longtime friend, Jerry Barrish, on the SF Film Society blog, SF360.

“In 1983, William Farley attended the Florence Film Festival with his 16mm feature, Citizen: I’m Not Losing My Mind, I’m Giving It Away. He noticed another San Franciscan on the gigantic festival poster, Jerry Barrish, who for one reason or another hadn’t made the journey with his indie drama, Dan’s Motel. So Farley nabbed an extra poster, and called Barrish when he got back to town to arrange a handoff. The two filmmakers from hardscrabble backgrounds had quite a bit in common, it turned out, and became friends. It seems inevitable, now, that one would eventually make a film about the other.”
