A Bread Factory: An Interview with Filmmaker Patrick Wang A Bread Factory still Tyne Daly Elisabeth Henry

Texas-born, Taiwanese American, supremely talented and overwhelmingly undersung. Filmmaker Patrick Wang has received endless praise by film-goers and critics alike, and though he’s been releasing films since 2011 to high praise, it’s likely his work has flown beneath your radar. 

The Grand Cinema is pleased to not only play Wang’s latest but also welcome him back to Tacoma next Tuesday, April 30. The film is called A Bread Factory, named for the bakery-turned-performance-space on which the film centers. Set in a small fictional upstate New York town, The Bread Factory is at threat of losing public funding due to newcomer performance artists.

The film is a love letter to community theater (and communities), and feels more than appropriate to play at Tacoma’s own local nonprofit art house cinema. In the following interview, Patrick and marketing manager Tanya talked this, his transition from theater to film, “talkable art,” and more!

Funny documentary Hail Satan? Isn't What You Expect hail_satan_-_publicity_-_h_2018

I don’t want to spoil it, but HAIL SATAN? drills down on the topic of the separation of church and state, and sets an amazing set of modern day tenets for this ‘religion’ that left me agreeing and wondering “by this definition, could I qualify as a Satanist”? I think by the end of the film most Grand patrons will be wondering the same.
