Stonewall interview

31 Jul, 2015

Emmerich discusses the difficulties he faced in filming the gay rights drama Stonewall:

It was a huge challenge to make this movie, and if I had not absolutely wanted it, it would not have happened… It was an uphill battle, but we finally did it.

The film is shot in Montreal.

We wanted to do it in New York on location, and that failed miserably because it was so expensive.

Of the diverse crowd the film depicts:

I think we represented it very well. We have drag queens, lesbians, we have everything in the film because we wanted to portray a broader image of what ‘gay’ means.
