QWERTY director Bill Sebastian

A film about love and... SCRABBLE?!? So it goes with the Illinois-made indie QWERTY, which received a terrific review from the legendary Roger Ebert and has enjoyed a prolific festival run that has included trips to Dallas International, Seattle and Nashville, to name a few. QWERTY comes back home to Chicago this Tuesday, March 5th when it screens at the Midwest Independent Film Festival. Director Bill Sebastian stopped by for a quick chat with our Mike McNamara to introduce us to the unlikely romantic pair of Zoe and Marty, discuss his own personal fascination with SCRABBLE and share with us his most daunting challenge in completing this entertaining indie.
