Interview with N.O.N. Director Zebulon Zang VIFF 2018



Heartbroken and flat broke, Greg struggles to reenter the workforce and suffers a series of seriocomic indignities, including sitting through a motivational speaking session in a gymnasium and single-handedly crewing an experimental film. As Greg's excursions take him through Vancouver's suburbs, office spaces, woodlands, bookshops, basement suites and galleries, his existential dread steeps. In turn, director/multi-disciplinary artist Zebulon Zang reveals himself to be a keen observer of human nature (and accompanying ludicrous behavior) who is capable of mining rich absurdity from the seemingly mundane.

Today I had Zebulon on the show to discuss the process of bringing his unique vision to the screen. N.O.N. will be screening at the Vancouver International Film Festival on September 30th and October 7th. For more information and to purchase tickets click HERE.
