‘Sasquatch’ Director Joshua Rofé Shares the Dangerous Details Behind the Enthralling New Hulu True Crime Series [Interview]

Did Bigfoot murder three men at a Northern California pot farm in the early ’90s? That may sound like a joke, but it’s the question that kicks off Sasquatch, Hulu’s new three-episode true crime series about monsters, marijuana, murder, and the maddening quest for truth. I caught the first episode at the SXSW Film Festival and was instantly hooked by the show’s perspective, its cinematic pacing, and its sense of dread. And before I interviewed director Joshua Rofé, I devoured the other two episodes and was pleased to find that the series sticks the landing, remaining enigmatic and unsettling until its final moments.
In our interview, Rofé talks about what it was like to film an investigation in progress, taking cameras into areas that felt profoundly unsafe, and whether or not this project has changed whether or not he believes in bigfoot.
Sasquatch is currently streaming on Hulu.
