79. Gabriel Barreto is Willie's Roadie & Spielberg's Something

Josh is in Austin for SXSW to sell merch for Headgum and get some great interviews. He sat down with Gabriel Barretto the filmmaker behind My Cricket and Me. It's a comedy loosely based on Gabriel's experience as a roadie with Willie Nelson the summer before going off to Sarah Lawrence. Gabriel grew up in an entertainment family, his mom is actress Amy Irving from Yentl & Carrie, and his dad is Bruno Barreto the acclaimed Brazilian filmmaker. He has an interesting perspective as a showbiz kid, like how weird it is to see your mom die on film and how he taught Stephen Spielberg (his mom's first husband) to beat a level on Angry Birds.
