Jessica Leski is the director of I Used to Be Normal, a documentary following four women who are obsessed with their boyband of choice. I Used to Be Normal was my number one film at Fantastic Fest. Leski and her producer Rita Walsh take you deep into the world of boyband fandom, and they don't stop there! This documentary is full of surprises that will make you reflect on your own passions afterwards. In this interview, Jessica and I talk about the inspiration for the film, deleted scenes, and documenting the featured girls for over five years. You can follow Jessica on Twitter.
