GETTINGIT: I don’t suppose the Amish keep up on independent movies, but have you heard anything from their community about this?
JC: No, I haven’t, but we lived there for a couple of years, until this past spring, and I could always find some reason to work the subject into the various conversations I’d have with people. I had already based a movie on a person I had met in the area — that’s who Amy Strangled a Small Child was all about. I found Lancaster, Pennsylvania to be so creatively stimulating that I had to base an entire film on the local culture, as a tribute — the Amish have become so inbred that there are two types of dwarfism which are only found in Lancaster County and the surrounding areas. Needless to say, the subject of “inbreeding” is a very sensitive matter in that area.
In my current project, My Struggle, we have Amish men who are so inbred that they’ve taken to kidnapping female tourists who the Amish hope will help dilute their stagnant gene pool. To achieve this objective, the kidnappers use rape, but only after the victims are forced to wear Halloween-type sheep masks. I’m in the movie as well, as a wacky Gulf War vet who lives in an attic and tries to pass off paint-by-number pieces to galleries as his own work. His life story is very similar to Hitler’s, though instead of attempting to conquer Europe, my character ends up “rescuing” kidnapped tourists. I don’t want to give too much of this away, but I think you get the picture.
