Filmmaker Q&A: Bob Byington

Bob is best known for his role as the checked out older brother in a film he wrote and directed, Harmony And Me. A film from last year, Infinity Baby, a comedy about babies that won’t age, won Best Narrative Feature at the Woodstock Film Festival in 2017. His Somebody Up There Likes Me won Special Jury Price at the Locarno Film Festival in 2012.

Program Notes

Frances Ferguson, the eponymously named character at the center of Bob Byington’s new film, is discontent. Like a lot of us, she does a bit of “acting out” and pays the price – an arrest, a trial, incarceration. And then a new identity, one that’s not terribly comfortable. Nick Offerman narrates this deviant comedy, based on actual events.
