Podcast – Episode 27: Writing-Directing Duo Joe Dietsch & Louis Gibson Discuss MANIFEST WEST
Manifest West is a coming of age survival drama starring Milo Gibson, Annet Mahendru and Lexi Kolker. A film about a family ditching civilisation and seeking a new life in the American wilderness, Manifest West is an incredibly timely movie which looks at family values, the broken economy and the search for a better way of life.
The film’s writer-directors Joe Dietsch and Louis Gibson joined Niall Browne on the Movies In Focus podcast to talk about how the film came to be and the struggles of making such a close-knit drama. Louis Gibson (the son of actor Mel Gibson) also talked about what it was like making the film which stars his wife Annet and his brother Milo in the lead roles.
