In the Family / Frank Barrera


American Cinematographer contributor Jim Hemphill talks with cinematographer Frank Barrera about his collaboration with actor and first-time director Patrick Wang to create a restrained and effective look for this Indie film shot on the Red One camera. 

They also cover their visual influences, especially how they avoid being overly melodramatic and how they were heavily influenced by Ingmar Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage and Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence.
