AMFM Interview with Alexander Skarsgård & Brit Marling

INTERVIEW SXSW 2013

March 28, 2013 By

Note: This is a joint media production between AMFM Magazine and Paul Salfen of the Drew Pearson Show.

THE EAST, a suspenseful and provocative espionage thriller from acclaimed writer-director Zal Batmanglij and writer-actress Brit Marling, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and closed out the SXSW 2013 Film Festival. Marling stars as former FBI agent Sarah Moss who goes deep undercover to infiltrate The East, an elusive anarchist collective seeking revenge against major corporations guilty of covering up criminal activity. Determined, highly-trained and resourceful, Sarah soon ingratiates herself with the group, overcoming their initial suspicions and joining them on their next action or “jam.” But living closely with the intensely committed members of The East, Sarah finds herself torn between her two worlds as she starts to connect with anarchist Benji (Alexander Skarsgård) and the rest of the collective, and awakens to the moral contradictions of her personal life. Paul Salfen interviews Brit Marling and Alexander Skarsgard.

Alexander @ Sundance Film Festival

Alexander Skarsgård is in Utah and promoting his movie The East at the Sundance Film Festival. From the looks of things he seems to be having a good time, but who wouldn’t in the charming town of Park City, just on the other side of the mountain from Salt Lake City. Sounds far but is less than the an hour from the famous Mormom capital. Don’t let that get you down though SLC is as full of Californians and West Coast refugees with their New Age lifestyle as it is Mormoms and their Old Age beliefs.

Park City, the old mining town, is where the Festival is held and you can see bits of it in the outside shots of Alexander. There isn’t much you are missing as the old part of town is just a few blocks. And if it seems like everything is tilted, it is. It is high on the mountain, and at the end of the road is a very popular ski resort.
