Kathryn Bigelow Talks Art & Explosives

“It’s a process,” said Kathryn Bigelow with a smile and a sigh, leaning against a wall inside the Directors Guild Theater on Thursday night. “It is a process.”

By it, Bigelow was referring to the Oscar Campaign, a seemingly endless string of Q&As and meet ‘n’ greets that can drive the strongest filmmaker to the edge of exhaustion.

But when you’ve made one of the best films of the year, as she certainly has with “The Hurt Locker” … and when you’re considered a frontrunner on the verge of what could be a truly historic Oscar victory … and when your movie is a small, risky indie that deserves a wider audience … and when people constantly want to talk to you, and show your films, and applaud your accomplishments … when all of that is happening, what’s a filmmaker to do but submit to the process?
