Bronwyn Lake sat for her first interview yesterday for our documentary on her and her father, author Jay Lake.
As a filmmaker it is challenging enough to interview people about difficult aspects of their life, but interviewing a minor about how she was affected by her father’s cancer treatment, especially chemotherapy, is a delicate and respectful process.
Fortunately, Bronwyn was more than up to the task. On top of everything else going on as the school-year ends, she had to deal with a film crew setting up in her father’s basement office.
This first session captured a lot of gems and demonstrates that, adopted or not, Bronwyn is a lot like her father.
