Sammi Lim for The Dance Enthusiast: Some films at SCREAMDANCE! 2017 don’t address ‘horror’ by way of ghouls but highlight the horrors of history. The Center of The Room by Vanessa Calderon, for instance, is political. Tell us about this film.

Marisa Jane Green: Horror comes in many forms, and political horror is kind of the new American reality, right? Vanessa’s film specifically deals with forced sterilization in Peru in the mid 1980s. It’s a really terrifying and heartbreaking subject that she and the director are able to bring into intense focus.
