NEW FAVORITE HOBBY: TALKING TO FILMMAKERS I LIKE
I’ve been doing some interviews this year, and it’s really fun. I think I’ll keep it up. Here is a link to an interview with Jim Finn. Here is an interview I did with Jackie Goss. More coming up with Benj Gerdes & Jennifer Hayashida, James T. Hong, Sam Green, Eric Daniel Metzgar, and Adele Horne. I learn a lot from these conversations, and hope that other people will find them interesting also.
NEW VIDEO, YO
This video will teach you how to write an autobiography, with examples from the narrator’s own life.
I am very excited to be programming this monthly series, presenting risk-taking documentary films for the Flaherty Seminar. Events are at Anthology Film Archives, beginning this September!
