The Flashback Interview: Sarah Kernochan
My first exposure to my newest interview subject, Sarah Kernochan, came when my mom allowed me to rent the movie 9 1/2 Weeks, which Sarah helped write, on New Years’ Eve in 2001. Although my mom wasn’t aware of most 80s pop culture, she had heard of that film, and was reluctant to let me see it, but she eventually let me, and I liked what I saw. A few months later, I watched the 74th Academy Awards and saw Sarah Kernochan onstage accepting an Oscar for Best Documentary Short for Thoth. Years later, I looked up Sarah Kernochan’s official website, and was impressed by the depths of her talents. She’s been a screenwriter, a director and a musician. I knew I’d want to interview her someday, and that day came on June 17th, 2019. I hope you all enjoy getting to know her.
