Antibirth writer-director and Sundance alum Danny Perez and his two stars, Natasha Lyonne and Chloe Sevigny, stopped by the DeadlineNow Sundance studio to promote their much-discussed midnight section title. With gorgeously bizarre visual style, the film dives into a fascinating community of trailer dwellers and drug-addled ex-marines. Below, Perez talks about bringing his second Sundance-premiering project to the screen, while Lyonne and a very tired Sevigny explain what’s it like to have two or three films premiering at the festival in the same year. Additionally, Lyonne discusses her expertise in portraying self-destructive characters—see Netflix’s Orange is the New Black—a talent that she takes to peak levels of intensity in Antibirth.
