A three-hour interview about the making of Kafka (1992), Steven Soderbergh's second feature film. This is the first time the complete interview has been published in English. Portions of this interview were originally published in Chaplin, the magazine of the Swedish Film Institute. In this interview Soderbergh compares his methods to the making of his first feature sex, lies and videotape. He discusses working with actors, his script writer and his cinematographer, Walt Lloyd; as well working with one of the few remaining black and white commercial film processing laboratories in the USA. Soderbergh is candid about how budget and creative limitations affected Kafka's production. Kafka stars Jeremy Irons, Joel Grey, Theresa Russell, Armin Mueller-Stahl and Alec Guiness.
