An interview with both Christine and Michael on the making of All About Us.
Moviemaking is a family affair for Michael and Christine Swanson. He produces, while she, a former student of Spike Lee’s, writes and directs. This month they released their second feature film since creating their company, Faith Filmworks, in 1999. Their first film, All About You, was produced in 2001 and toured the African-American festival circuit for a few years before finally coming out on DVD in 2004. In the interim, they tried to get theatrical distribution for their film, but in those days before the big-screen arrival of Tyler Perry, studios tended to insist that there wasn’t much of a market for values-based, PG-rated films aimed at black moviegoers.
