[23 mins. 109 secs.] The legendary filmmaker Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep, The Glass Shield) graces the podcast for a career spanning conversation. Burnett was in New York City this past September when the Film Society of Lincoln Center screened a restored version of To Sleep With Anger and made it something of a retrospective. This was recorded from his hotel room. But before that [10 mins.] we have a brief phone conversation with Filmwax Radio friend, the filmmaker Clay Liford about his new feature, Slash. The film which according to the New York Times is a “sweet coming-of-age film”, has a weeklong theatrical release at the IFP‘s Made in NY Media Center as part of their Screen Forward series. Clay and friends will be at the first screening tonight, 7:00pm, at the theater which is located at 30 Jay Street in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn.
