Writer/director Juli Jackson recently spoke with “Breakthrough Entertainment” and Phoenix Movie Examiner about her new road dramedy “45RPM.”

In “45RPM” - which screens 7:25 p.m. Friday, April 4, 12:55 p.m. Saturday, April 5 and 11:55 a.m. Sunday, April 6 at Harkins Scottsdale 101 as part of the 14th Annual Phoenix Film Festival - Liza Burns plays an artist who, struggling with the source of her inspiration, finds help from an obsessive record collector (Jason Thompson) in the search for her deceased father’s lost music.

Listen to “Breakthrough Entertainment” and Phoenix Movie Examiner's full interview with Jackson by clicking on the image above this article. The following is an excerpt from the interview in which the writer/director discusses what she hopes audiences will take away from watching “45RPM.”

There is a line that [Jason Thompson’s character] says that, to me, kind of sums up what the takeaway for the movie is and it's really simple. ‘If you are trying to find something that nobody else cares about, the moment that you really stop looking for that thing is when it disappears.’ It is kind of the idea that if you believe the thing that will help you is out there in the world, you will find it. Just don't give up looking for it - even if it is a record or something bigger. That was kind of the big push for me and something that inspired me to write the film in the first place and also give both [Liza Burns and Jason Thompson’s characters] that goal of not giving up in their search even if no one cares about what you are going for.” - Juli Jackson
