Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 55- Paige Tolmach & Peter Spirer

Today I’ve got an amazing line up of interviews for you. This might be one of my most important episodes ever honestly. I’m talking w/ Paige Tolmach, director of What Haunts Us, an incredibly important film about the child sexual abuse that happened at her high school in her hometown, the silence surrounding the issue, and the resulting suicides that led to her creating the documentary.  You can see this weekend at the Washington West Film Festival if you live in the DMV area, and the Austin Film Festival if you live in Austin, TX. 

Speaking of films you can see. You can log in to your Netflix streaming account right now and see the film Feel Rich. This is an eye-opening documentary directed by Peter Spirer in which the hip-hop community opens up about why health is the new wealth. 

These are some great conversations on important topics and insightful films!

Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.
