Tavis Smiley interview

11 Dec, 2012

Damon discusses his latest project, Promised Land, co-written by, co-produced by, and starring himself, in this interview for PBS. On natural gas drilling in the United States:

Well, leaving the film out of it, it’s a very divisive issue and people feel very strongly one way or another. So for us, we wanted to make this movie about where we are in America right now, so it was really the perfect issue to use as a backdrop for that, to explore those themes, because the film covers where we’ve come from, where we are, and where we’re going, and what happens when big money collides with real people.
