The Double Macguffin Ep. 2
Henry Griffin and Jonathan Freilich discuss two fascinating films to take you far away from the immediacies of the pandemic.
The Double MacGuffin Ep.1
Director/Screenwriter/Film professor, Henry Griffin discusses Safe and Silent Running with composer, Jonathan Freilich. Rec. April 2020
conversation on Faces Places dir. Agnes Varda
Henry and Jonathan discuss the chemistry between Agnes Varda, with Godard the last of the Nouvelle Vague, and JR – a small woman of 89 years and an active, wiry guy of about 35. JR has a short, high, square van decorated as a giant lens equipped with a photo booth and a printer – I think they are called giclée – that makes poster prints about three feet by five feet that roll out through a long slot in the side of the van. There is a lot more to this film than the photo van, of course, but making the process immediate and participatory, it catalyzes the interaction. The people are photographed in the booth or in outside scenes, the posters printed and the pasting up done almost immediately with the participation of the subjects and the village. Not just images, the photos are part of an event.
Conversation on Morvern Callar(2002) dir. Lynne Ramsay
Morvern Callar is a 2002 film by Glaswegian director Lynne Ramsey, who then did not direct another until We Need to Talk about Kevin in 2011 – an uncomfortable film, now even more so in the wake of Parkland.
