Director Mark Christopher sits down with Elvis Mitchell to discuss the highlights and frustrations of filming the 1998 cult-classic 54. With a burgeoning cast and large studio backing, the film had the makings for a timely, box office smash but was negatively affected by a severely altered end product. Now, Christopher is proud of the opportunity for viewers to experience the film in its original version, as it should have been released nearly 20 years ago.
