This chapter presents an interview with Tom Kalin, a New York-based filmmaker, writer, producer, and activist, best known as a prominent figure in the New Queer Cinema. His feature films include Swoon (1992) and Savage Grace (2007). He has also created short films and video works screened in numerous international film festivals and included in the permanent collections of Centre George Pompidou, Paris and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The interview covered topics such as how Savage Grace by Natalie Robins and Steven M. L. Aronson came to Kalin's attention and the particular elements that attracted him to it; whether he is drawn to flawed characters and to central relationships based on a combustible dynamic; and his collaboration with writer Howard Rodman.
