Spotlight: In the Family director Patrick Wang

Right after the 1995 closing of The Houston Post, I sent what I thought were a lot of resumes out to other newspapers. But I have to admit: After talking with Patrick Wang, I feel like a slacker. The Houston-born filmmaker received nearly thirty rejections -- that's three-zero, thirty! -- from various film festivals while trying to find a showcase for his first indie feature, the critically acclaimed In the Family. You can read my CultureMap interview with this tenacious multihyphenate here.

I've read enough of your reviews and articles around the Internet to know that you are no slacker. Still, Mr. Wang may have you beat on sheer stubborness. LOL
