An interview with Rose Troche

Writer-director-producer, Rose Troche’s first feature film, Go Fish, premiered at Sundance in 1994 and went on to become one of the most significant titles in lesbian cinema. Fast forward through Troche’s career and you’ll make stops at The Safety of Objects, the award-winning film starring Patricia Clarkson and Glenn Close, the pilot of South of Nowhere, HBO’s Six Feet Under, ABC’s Ugly Betty, and, of course, The L Word.

Troche’s latest project is Concussion, a film by writer-director Stacie Passon. Concussion tells the story of Abby, an upscale housewife married to a woman, who becomes a prostitute for other women, following a head injury.
