The Daily Buzz from Sundance: Day 7 (2/4/20)

We head into episode 7 with fun and controversy. Listen to our chat with Slamdance filmmaker Dan Wayne about his documentary, BIG FUR, about taxidermist Ken Walker on making his own Bigfoot. Did you see Dan and Ken walking around with Bigfoot on Main Street? In a scintillating roundtable with female composers Anne Nikitin, Tamar-kali, and Nainita Desai, we uncover a little bitterness from the male community as women rise in filmmaking. Learn what was said and how these women killed it in composing THE ASSISTANT, THE LAST THING HE WANTED, SHIRLEY, THE REASON I JUMP, and LOST GIRLS. We also speak with acclaimed documentarian Liz Garbus about her first narrative feature LOST GIRLS. She’s joined by her star Amy Ryan, who had two films at Sundance Film Festival this year (LOST GIRLS and WORTH). Finishing off the episode, we chat with filmmakers Alexa Lim Haas, Hannah Fidell, and Dylan Redford about the collaborative Borscht Corporation debut feature, OMNIBOAT: A FAST BOAT FANTASIA. Did you know that Alexa also did the animation for MUCHO MUCHO AMOR? More on that in tomorrow’s episode!
