Clay Liford film ‘Earthling’ to show at SXSW

When we interviewed film director Clay Liford for the February Advocate, he had just learned that his feature film "Earthling" had been accepted to a major film festival, but the festival wouldn’t allow him to announce it at that time. Liford, who lives in Exposition Park and has a studio in Oak Cliff, just announced that the film, which is a science fiction flick about a woman in her 30s who is dealing with infertility, will be showcased at SXSW in March.

Here is a link to a trailer for "Earthling."

One of the film’s stars is Peter Greene, who played Zed in "Pulp Fiction".  Liford told us that a trick directors use in low-budget films is to hire one well-known actor for a day or two and shoot as many scenes as they can while they have him or her. So Greene’s scenes in "Earthling" were shot back-to-back.
