I don't know about you, but I'm always frustrated when I get excited about a good movie at a festival, only to see the film descend into the bowels of obscurity after distribution dead-ends. Why is it so hard for anyone but a handful of good independent films to make their way onto my screen at home? After a year of hard work, I am excited to see the atmospheric, underdog film Hide Your Smiling Faces finally making it somewhere. Around this time last year, director Daniel Patrick Carbone sat down with No Film School over Skype. Checkout our original interview below, and find out where you can download the film now!

The following interview was done with Daniel Patrick Carbone from his Brooklyn apartment, and he talks about numerous aspects of making Hide Your Smiling Faces, from not yelling with the camera to not knowing if anyone would ever watch the finished product.

Congratulations and good luck, Daniel!
