The Daily Buzz from Sundance: Day 4 (1/30/20)

Day four of Slamdance and Sundance coverage includes a segment with the girls of TAHARA, a narrative feature about the teenage complications of lust, social status, and wavering faith. Director Olivia Peace, writer Jess Zeidman, and actresses Madeline Grey DeFreece and Rachel Sennott join the Daily Buzz for a fun conversation about this crowd-pleasing Jewish film. We speak with filmmaker, Lynne Sachs, about her opening night Slamdance film, FILM ABOUT A FATHER WHO. It’s a “personal meditation” on her father, Ira Sachs, who was also a prominent businessman in Park City, UtahWe also speak with Justin Simien and actress Elle Lorraine regarding the “Midnight” film about a scalp trauma, BAD HAIR. There’s one other roundtable with Greek-born French actress, Ariane Labed, and Slamdance Episodic participants, Scout Durwood and Kacy Boccumini. We talk to these ladies about OLLA, the directorial debut for Ariane Labed, and TAKE ONE THING OFF, a series of episodes that blend comedy and music, from director, writer, and star Scout Durwood and producer Kacy Boccumini. The two films seem so different, but there are so many similarities. You’ll have to listen to find out how it all connects!
