Q: Congrats on the film! First feature film, was it comforting because it was something you knew (music and movies) so well?

Floria Sigismondi: Yeah, obviously the music part, I felt very comfortable with it. But also, you know, being a young girl brought me back to my childhood. What would it be like to be fifteen and kind of be thrown into this world?

Q: You were about ten when they (The Runaways) came out, were you listening to them? What other bands were you listening to?

Floria Sigismondi: I loved Blondie, Iggy Pop (I’ve got my Iggy shirt on). I love Iggy. “I Want To Be Your Dog” is in the film and I’m really excited about that…and some David Bowie.
