Robin Milling hosts a special conversation with director Rik Cordero for the Big Vision Empty Wallet (BVEW) screening of his new film, Starla starring his real life wife, Nancy Mitchell. BVEW creates opportunities for independent artists to showcase their work. Cordero is known for his unique music video projects with such top hip-hop artists as Jay-Z, The Roots, Wu-Tang Clan, Wale and Nas. Starla is his third feature, having also directed the documentary The World Is Watching, about the culture of York City high school basketball, narrated by Spike Lee.
Rik tells Robin how directing Mitchell in such an emotional role of a mother who loses her only daughter during a botched surgery, only helped to strengthen their relationship. Nancy wasn't as thrilled with acting underwater as she actually went through shock and hypothermia in the freezing waters of the Hamptons in March! His next project will be a supernatural thriller so stay tuned...
