Media-Shy Matrix Director Opens Up

Filmmakers Larry and Andy Wachowski, best known as the masterminds behind the $3 billion Matrix trilogy, have been notoriously reclusive when it comes to sharing insights with the press. Neither has granted an interview until now. So who’s getting the big scoop? Time? Newsweek? Animation Magazine? We wish.

Larry Wachowski sat down with his friend, Ken Wilber, and broke his silence on the meaning of the Matrix saga and other topics with the first in a series of conversations to be featured on multimedia web-portal Integral Naked (www.integralnaked.org). The dialogue began when Wachowski asked Wilber and Cornel West to do the director’s commentary on all three of the Matrix movies for the box set that Warner Brothers is releasing this Fall.

Influential integral theorist Ken Wilber has published 23 books in more than 30 languages. In addition to being one of America’s most widely translated academic writers, he is a pioneer in integral approaches to everything from business to ecology to psychology and spirituality. He founded Integral Naked in April 2003 and is also the president and founder of Integral Institute (www.integralinstitute.org).

Integral Naked promises to take visitors "behind the scenes with the most provocative thinkers in today’s world." Other featured interviewees include Michael Crichton, Tony Robbins, Billy Corgan, Saul Williams and Julia Ormond. The first Larry Wachowski piece is now online.
