Filmmakers Tackle the US Political Circus [PODCAST]
With less than three weeks left until Americans vote for their next president, Indie Film Weekly discusses the film world’s take on the craziest election cycle on record.
Co-hosts Emily Buder, Charles Haine, and yours truly, Liz Nord investigate how the far left, the far right, and several creators in between are using film to respond to both the candidates and the issues. We also cover the recent arrest of filmmakers and journalists attempting to film oil pipeline protests in North Dakota, the passing of Polish filmmaker Andrzej Wajda, and how Razer's purchase of THX gets us one step closer to standardized calibration. Our Ask No Film School question is twofold: we talk about the difference in ISO for still photography and video, and about making creative choices in your documentary. As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
