The Daily Buzz from Sundance: Bonus Episode 3 (2020)

Our third bonus episode of the Daily Buzz from Slamdance and Sundance 2020 starts with interviews with seasoned documentary filmmaker Steve James and subjects Amara Enyia and Maze Jackson from his new episodic, CITY SO REAL. Hear about the kaleidoscope of voices collected during a heated mayoral election of America’s third largest city, Chicago. Next, listen to our conversation about films from the south with the Interim Executive Director of the Southern Doc Fund, Jenny Slattery, and the Executive Director of New Orleans Video Access Center, Darcy McKinnon. Learn about the not-often voiced hardships that filmmakers from the Southern American States face when making a movie. Then listen in on our conversation about BLOODY NOSE, EMPTY POCKETS with filmmaker brothers Bill and Turner Ross. It’s a documentary film that takes you into the last few moments before a Las Vegas dive bar dims their lights forever. The last segment ends with filmmaker Bao Nguyen and producer Julia Nottingham. Their film, BE WATER, explores the legacy of Bruce Lee that is rarely examined in past studies.
