Ricky D’Ambrose, writer/director of The Cathedral, discusses the production of his acclaimed ultra-low-budget feature.
Ricky D’Ambrose’s second feature, The Cathedral, is a beautifully elegiac and introspective feature that, through the viewpoint of the young son, follows a family’s rise and fall through the late ‘80s into the ‘90s. Premiering at the Venice Film Festival before playing Sundance, and now in release from MUBI, the film is a triumph of economical filmmaking, using a boldly minimalist style and clever production and sound design to skillfully evoke its period. Filmmaker Editor Scott Macaulay will speak to D’Ambrose, one of the magazine’s 25 New Faces, about the production decisions involved in making a period film on an ultra-low budget, and about scaling up to larger crews and casts from his previous micro-budget work.
