Opening tomorrow in NYC, L.A., and other selected cities is director Sebastian Silva’s drug fueled comedy Crystal Fairy. The film stars Michael Cera as an American expat who, while on a trip in Chile, sets out in search of the prized San Pedro cactus along with three Chilean brothers in order to reap its hallucinatory benefits. The pic is one of two Michael Cera-led indies that Silva shot in Chile, with the other being the psychological horror pic Magic Magic. Both premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Crystal Fairy also stars Gaby Hoffman, Juan Andres Silva, Jose Miguel Silva, and Agustin Silva.
During the recent L.A. press day, I landed an exclusive interview with Cera and Silva. They talked about how they started working together, filming a realistic portrayal of a drug trip, the shooting process, how much was improvised, did they make any changes since premiering at Sundance, Gaby Hoffman’s amazing performance, Magic Magic, future projects, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch and definitely check out Crystal Fairy.
