An interview with Antony Langdon and Nathalia Acevedo, the undisputed lead actors of Illum Jacobi’s film, The Trouble With Nature, presented in the Deep Focus strand of the 2020 International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film draws inspiration from Edmund Burke (played by Langdon) and on this film, the two actors give their own interpretations of each other’s characters. They also discuss their definitions of the “sublime,” their relationships to nature, peeing habits and much more, in what may simply be described as just little-over-ten-minutes of pure radio gold.
The Trouble With Nature: Rampant debt and a significant midlife crisis send philosopher Edmund Burke (Antony Langdon) fleeing from London to embark on an expedition through the French Alps. He brings along a servant on loan from his brother’s plantation in the West Indies, a young indigenous woman named Awak (Nathalia Acevedo from Post Tenebras Lux). Together they set out to discover the sublime in this 18th-century road movie. Ill-equipped for the outdoor life, Burke whinges the days away while Awak carries all their supplies and makes sure his face is perpetually powdered.
