Anna Biller, Los Angeles independent filmmaker, director, writer, producer, and star of the retro-sexploitation film Viva (2007) discusses her creative influences and production practice. Discussing the value of discarded generic modes such as 1960s sexploitation film and the use of pop cultural and media forms as resources and creative materials, Biller details the nature of her aesthetic preoccupations with the material ephemera of the “sexual revolution,” as well as its aftermaths.
