Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund & Sam Riley | Cannes Film Festival 2012
the struggle between man’s conscious and his heart until things go too far, get out of hand, and can never be repaired
DAS FINSTERE TAL
Ein Bewegtbildkunstwerk von Andreas Prochaska
I auditioned for the big five English drama schools, but didn’t get in, and a teacher at the time said to give up. I did stop doing it for five years. I wanted to be a rock star. But we lost our record contract pretty quickly and I called my agent that I had told I was going to be a rock star and weirdly, she said, “They’re looking for someone to play the singer of Joy Division in Manchester” [for the film Control]. I was working in a warehouse then. I told the people at the warehouse I was going to the dentist and went to the audition. I got the job and I’ve been an actor since then.
When you look at your life, in a strange new room, maybe drowning soon, is this the start of it all?

"We had a farewell meal of franks and beans in a Seventh Avenue Riker’s, and then Dean got on the bus that said Chicago and roared off into the night. There went our wrangler. I promised myself to go the same way when spring really bloomed and opened up the land. And this was really the way that my whole road experience began, and the things that were to come are too fantastic not to tell."
