Interview with Noel Lawrence and Darius James on “Sammy-Gate”

For those who didn’t catch it earlier, Screen Anarchy did a great in-depth interview with Darius and I for “Sammy-Gate.” 

Martin Kudlac saw the film at IFFR and gave us an opportunity to speak at length about the film and our theories regarding “psychedelic history.”

A Quick Update on Sammy-Gate

For those awaiting more information on the release of “Sammy-Gate,” I just wanted to post a long-belated update on the film.  

Due to the pandemic, the team made the difficult but necessary decision to delay the theatrical release of the film. 

As to the exact thought process that led to this decision, you may want to read my essay “Why I Will Not Put My Film Online” that I wrote for Filmmaker Magazine.

Since the situation is so fluid, there is no real point in giving a release date at this juncture. All I can promise is that it will be worth the wait. 

Meanwhile, I will have some other news about the film soon. Thanks for your patience.

Noel Lawrence, Director of “Sammy-Gate”
