Play

[6 mins. 10 secs.] Filmwax Radio’s Sundance correspondent Ronald Wohlman is back reporting on his experience in Park City last week which includes having seen 18 films in 3  1/2 days.

[39 mins. 55 secs.] Film programmer Pawel Wieszczecinski returns to the podcast. He was last on Episode 332 back in January of 2016. Pawel is about to officially launch his indie film streaming service, Kinoscope, and fans of this podcast will not want to miss this. For the very negligible monthly cost of $5.00, you can watch countless hours of great American and international festival films.  Pawel is joined by Filmwax friend Betty Kaplan, on a brief visit from Berlin.

[1 hr. 22 mins. 53 secs.] Last up, filmmaker Matthew Lessner with his dramatically eerie feature Automatic at Sea. Joining us is the film’s producer & lead actor, David Henry Gerson. On a whim, Eve, a Swedish traveler, accepts an invitation from Peter (Gerson) to vacation on his family’s private island off the coast of New England. As a series of unexpected delays prevent other guests from arriving, Eve discovers that she has little in common with the increasingly erratic Peter. Gradually the idyllic natural beauty of the island gives way and Eve finds herself trapped in a state of surreality punctuated by bizarre visions, dimensional shifting and secret soda. The film is currently available for streaming on Vimeo, iTunes & Amazon.
