Looking forward to this. "The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things" corrupted my innocent little brain in high school.
My short WORLD WIDE WOVEN BODIES is now online:

Conversation with director Jeff Feuerzeig & Laura Albert on WTF today

Laura said this, and it felt pretty cosmically applicable:

“…being in the world is really hard. And that’s what it’s fucking about. How do you make it different? How do you let people know? And what I found out is the secret to that, Marc, is craft. I’ve listened to you, right? And there’s something that you’re able to do: where you break stuff down and make it digestible, so people…it’s something that people are almost on the edge of and you articulate it so it’s like that “Aha!”, and it’s almost like a laxative for your bowels — I think shitting is the number one literature metaphor - “How do you move that shit out?” It breaks it down. It’s: how do you take problems of the soul and the spirit, and transform them into issues of craft and technique so it lodges in somebody so they care about something they didn’t before, so they can move out of the illusion of that isolation of self. Right? Because that’s the only way we get out of our suffering.”
