Director Josephine Decker and DP Ashley Connor talk to Filmmaker Magazine about their pair of experimental films currently making the festival circuit, Butter on the Latch and Thou Wast Mild & Lovely.

Says Decker, "Intimacy, immersion and intuition are our three 'go to' words. I don’t care for really static, observational shots that proclaim 'I’m going to look at a character while they do something' instead of thinking about what they’re feeling inside of their world. It can be judgmental or it can be sentimental. Separate yourself from the characters in the film or separate the audience from the characters in the film. I’m always interested in what it means to live someone else’s life. That’s one of the things that makes me excited to make art, to make movies, and to be in someone else’s world. That’s definitely what we’re trying to go for when making choices regarding the camera and every other thing about the film."
