Movie Meltdown - Episode 235
This week, we're back for our annual coverage of Flyover Film Festival. It was a terrific line-up of films this year, and we continue our on-going interview series on directors as we sit down with three amazing independent filmmakers.
First we talk to David Lowery, director of "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" starring Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Keith Carradine. Next we talk with Jillian Schlesinger about her film "Maidentrip". Her documentary features years of footage chronicling 14 year-old Laura Dekker's journey as she attempts to become the youngest person to sail around the world. And we round out the episode talking with Calvin Lee Reeder, director of "The Rambler", a surreal odyssey starring Dermot Mulroney and Lindsay Pulsipher.
And as we address the specifics of loitering around film fests, we also mention... Star Wars, furniture building, Scarecrow Video, a children's guide to film making, acid westerns, Monica Vitti, better home soun
