Each year the San Francisco Film Society invites a filmmaker to make the annual “State of Cinema” address at the SF International Film Festival. For this year’s event they got indie auteur/studio film savant Steven Soderberg to give the talk.
It’s a doozy.
The original plan was that this would only be for people in the room, but bootleg copies of the speech started making the rounds on the internet and now the Film Society has released both an official transcript and video.
If you care about film at all I won’t even talk to you again until you read or watch this. Bonus points: Soderberg talks Present Shock at the top.
