    11 - Ask Any Buddy's Elizabeth Purchell

    Hosts: Jon Dieringer & C. Spencer Yeh

    We speak to queer film historian, archivist, filmmaker, programmer, writer (and occasional Screen Slate contributor) Elizabeth Purchell while she was in town to present a Rosa von Praunheim retrospective. We talk about the pioneering queer German filmmaker before doing a deep dive into adult films: the history, the culture of collecting, tracking down rare films, bringing smut to Letterboxd, and why you hear Pink Floyd and see the same public bathroom in every gay porn film from the 70s.

    9 - On the Beach with Christopher Blauvelt

    Recorded live on the beach along the Croisette: the great cinematographer Christopher Blauvelt meets up with Screen Slate to discuss his career behind the camera, including his five films with Kelly Reichardt—the latest of which, Showing Up, premiered in competition at Cannes. We talk about his family's multigenerational history on film sets, honing in on a minimalist approach to create space for quiet moments, and how his mentor Harris Savides helped him understand the camera department as more than just a trade. Plus: musings on Cannes, meeting Mr. T, and why his manager wants him to stop making so many friends.

    Host: Jon Dieringer. Editor: C. Spencer Yeh.
