video diary: german invasion

german tv crew

My memoir Fun Home was just published in Germany, and a German television program decided they wanted to interview me–must be the slow season there. So the director flew over from Cologne, and the cameramen came up from NYC to film me for a day last week.

You might think it would be exciting to have a camera crew filming you all day. But based on my small amount of experience in such matters, I knew it would be excruciatingly boring. I didn’t know it would also be windy and rainy. To entertain myself while they fiddled with their equipment, I made my own short documentary of the process.
