[Interview] Morgan Spurlock and Eugene Jarecki Talk ‘Freakonomics’

Written by on October 15, 2010 

Freakonomics, the hit sensation book by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, has spawned one of the most interesting and compelling documentaries to come out the year which is Freakonomics: The Movie (read my review). The film is broken down into four sections based on chapters in the book, with interludes directed by Seth Gordon. I was fortunate to sit down with two of the six principle filmmaker collaborators for the film, Morgan Spurlock who directed the chapter A Roshanda by Any Other Name and Eugene Jarecki who directed the chapter It’s (Not Always) A Wonderful Life. Go ahead and watch below to gain some insight from these very talented documentary filmmakers.

(Note: Apologies for the shaky handheld camera work during Eugene’s interview because we had to film it on his walk back to work.)

Freakonomics is now in limited release.
