Jamming with Jim

On Film / Short Takes — Aug 20, 2010

As we’ve mentioned, Jim Jarmusch will be a guest curator at this year’s All Tomorrow’s Parties, the independent music festival that takes place in Monticello, New York, over Labor Day weekend, September 3 through 5. It’s a festival that is close to our hearts, as it features a venue for screenings of movies selected in part by the staff of the Criterion Collection. Jarmusch has just given an interview at Pitchfork about ATP—discussing how he got involved, the decisions behind some of the bands he selected, and the fact that he invited Bill Murray to come “just to hang out.” (We hope he shows!) Also revealed in the interview: Jarmusch’s cast for his next movie, including a couple of our favorites, Tilda Swinton and Michael Fassbender.
