Acclaimed filmmaker Paul Haggis is known for weaving characters from all walks of life into a tapestry of loss, love and conflict.

In his latest ensemble drama, 'Third Person,' Haggis builds a puzzle on how three different couples marked by pain and loss end up coming together. VOA’s Penelope Poulou spoke with Haggis about the creative process behind his movie.
