I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.

“When I first read Henry Bromell’s script, I panicked. Forty pages in an interrogation room! It was both a thrilling and terrifying task because as a director, you have nothing to hide behind. It’s all in the words, the acting and the turns of the scene. Working with Henry, who is no longer with us [Bromell died in March], the collaboration was profound. That day, Damian and Claire and I had broken down the scene as to where the turns were, what the important beats were. You have a character who has been incarcerated for eight years, who has been tortured and survived, and you have to believe that in 25 minutes, Carrie is going to turn him. It felt so intense that we decided to try it as one take, and the takes were between 23 and 25 minutes long. I’ve directed a lot and luckily on some wonderful shows, but I’ve never had that experience. Take two, two minutes in, I felt Henry reach over and grab my hand, and we held on to each other for the next 25 minutes.” —Lesli Linka Glatter on the challenges of shooting “Q&A”
