The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interviews With “The Wonderful Story Of Henry Sugar” Cinematographer & Costume Designer

“The Wonderful Story Of Henry Sugar,” based on the 1977 short story of the same name by Roald Dahl, had its world premiere at the 2023 Venice International Film Festival, where it received positive reviews for filmmaker Wes Anderson bringing his trademark cinematic style to the short film format. It is the second film adaptation of Dahl’s work directed by Anderson, following the Oscar-nominated “Fantastic Mr. Fox” in 2009. With an Academy Award nomination for Best Live Action Short, “Henry Sugar” marks Anderson’s eighth Oscar nomination. Working with his usual collaborators both in front and behind the camera, the film is the first of a four-part series of shorts adapted from Dahl’s short stories, including “The Swan,” “The Rat Catcher,” and “Poison.” All of them are now available to stream on Netflix. Costume Designer Kasia Walicka-Maimone and Cinematographer Robert Yeoman were kind enough to spend a few minutes speaking with us about their work on the short film and their experience working with Anderson. Please be sure to check out the short film, which is up for your consideration for Best Live Action Short Film at this year’s Academy Awards. Thank you, and enjoy!
