Good episode? Give it some love!
[7 mins.] In the first segment of Episode 429, filmmaker Pete Nicks (“The Waiting Room”) finally appears on the podcast! Pete discusses his new documentary, “The Force“, which opens in theaters on Friday, September 22nd. The film, which won him Best Director, U.S. Documentary at Sundance this year is the 2nd in his Oakland Trilogy, goes deep inside the embattled Oakland Police Department as it struggles to confront federal demands for reform, the rise of Black Lives Matter and an explosive scandal.

[44 mins. 30 secs.] Up next, a roundtable conversation with two of my favorite documentary filmmakers returning to the show, Doug Block (“51 Birch Street”) and Michael Rossato-Bennett (“Alive Inside”). We discuss making personal documentaries and what it takes to launch a crowdsourced fundraising campaign. Beside making personal documentary films that end up on HBO, Block also founded the popular documentary filmmaker resource, The D-Word. And in addition to making films, Rossato-Bennett, has founded the Alive Inside Foundation whose mission it is to bring youth together with elders living at home with Alzheimer’s. Both men reside in Manhattan.
