Based on her own 2018 short film of the same name, Emma Seligman’s “Shiva Baby” premiered at last year’s SXSW Film Festival and then came to this year’s TIFF, where it drew a tremendous word of mouth for its hilarious dark humor, escalating tension and terrific ensemble. Writer and director Emma Seligman was kind enough to take some time to talk to us about the genesis of the project, shooting a film that takes place in real-time, working with the actors, the film’s tension, its horror-like score, and more! Take a listen down below, enjoy and be sure to check out the film, which is sure to go down as one of 2021’s best.
