Documentarians Bill and Turner Ross have been painting portraits of American life for over a decade. Their latest film, Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets, marks a step in a bold, new direction, blurring the line between fact and fiction. Now available through Film at Lincoln Center, the movie unfolds during the final 24hrs. of a Las Vegas dive-bar. Regulars regale one another with memories of the shuttering institution– a home away from home. It's a story of a surrogate family, bound together by this bar, forced to confront the end of an era. This week's bonus episode with Bill and Turner get into how and why this breathtaking piece of work was made. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/talk-easy-with-sam-fragoso.
