Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 99- The Front Runner, Jamielyn Lippman, Ashley York, Dawn Mikkelson, & Norah Shapiro

Happy Friday folks! I’m so glad I get to cap off this election week with an episode of personal and political empowerment. I spoke with director Jamielyn Lippman about her documentary “3 Years in Pakistan: The Erik Aude Story”, director Ashley York about her film “Hillbilly”, director Dawn Mikkelson of “Risking Light” and director Norah Shapiro about her doc “Time for Ilhan”. Now the cool thing about “Time for Ilhan” is that it covers Ilhan Omar’s race for a seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2016 which made her the first Somali-American legislator to hold an elected office, and she just became the first Somali-American Muslim to hold a seat in US congress. So congrats to her! But first I’ve got my movie review of a political defeat in “The Frontrunner”, starring Hugh Jackman which hits theaters this weekend.

Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 98-Julia Moroles, In Search of Greatness, Cucalorus Festival & Lez Bomb

Happy Friday folks! This week I have a jam packed episode! I talk with Picture Lock contributor Julia Moroles about her love for documentary filmmaking, and her latest documentary. Julia also talked with Gabe Polsky, director of In Search of Greatness about his latest documentary, which is in theaters today! I talk with Chief Instigating Officer, Dan Brawley, of the Cucalorus festival about what we can expect to see next weekend at the festival that is still standing strong in it’s 24th year in Wilmington, NC. Which is awesome because the city was hit hard by Hurricane Florence this year. So mark your calendars for November 7th-11th film lovers!

If my talk with Dan isn’t enough to convince you to check it out, my conversation with one of my new best friends, Jenna Laurenzo surely will. Jenna is the director of Lez Bomb, a hilarious new comedy about coming home and coming out. The film will be playing at the Cucalorus film festival, which is quite coincidental because at the time we recorded, I had no idea! You’ll definitely want to hear the Picture Lock After Show conversation I had with Jenna which I’ll drop Monday on the podcast. It’s packed, but it’s another great episode!

Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 97- Leah Meyerhoff, Sharon Lewis, & Suzi Yoonessi

Happy Friday folks! This week I have three Film Fatales joining me. I was probably way to eager to speak with founder of the Film Fatales organization, Leah Meyerhoff. We talked about how the organization started and why its existence is necessary in these times. I also talk with director Sharon Lewis about her Afrofuturist film, Brown Girl Begins. We talk about the origins of her creating the film and what Afrofuturism is. Finally, I talk with director Suzi Yoonessi about her film Unlovable. I had the pleasure of seeing the film and you can too next week, Nov. 2nd as it has a limited release in theaters! 

It was awesome talking with these women directors. You’ll absolutely want to be on the lookout for the Picture Lock PR After Show conversations I had with Sharon and Suzi which will be dropped exclusively on the podcast Monday.

Comment

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.
