to Kill: How an Independant Producer Blasts Through Barriers to Make Movies that
Hailed by the New York Times as the "godmother to the politically committed
film," Christine Vachon has made her name with such bold, controversial and
commercially successful films as Boys Don't Cry, Kids, Safe, I Shot Andy Warhol and
Velvet Goldmine. Over the last decade, she has become a driving force behind the
most daring and strikingly independant filmmakers and helped put them on the map.
In this savagely witty and straight-shooting guide, Vachon reveals the guts of the
filmmaking process and offers shrewd practical insights and troubleshooting tips
on handling everything from hysterical actors and disgruntled teamsters to obtuse
marketing executives. $18.50.
