Interview with Mark Duplass & Natalie Morales of ‘Language Lessons’

Interview with Mark Duplass & Natalie Morales of ‘Language Lessons’. A chat with Adam & Cariño. One of my favorite films of 2021 is this wonderful little gem called Language Lessons, directed by and starring Cuban-American actress / filmmaker Natalie Morales, and co-starring Mark Duplass.

I did this interview the day I arrived in Venice for this year’s Venice Film Festival, and I still took the time to chat with them and ask them about making this film.
