Ep 347: Tribeca Film Festival with Rob Meyer, Vanessa Gould & Caitlin Mae Burke

Apr 23, 2016

Guests include Rob Meyer, the director of a new dramedy called "Little Boxes" which stars Melanie Lynskey. It's the summer before sixth grade, and Clark (Armani Jackson) is the new-in-town biracial kid in a sea of white kids. Discovering that to be cool he needs to act more black, he fumbles to meet expectations, while his parents, Mack (Nelsan Ellis) and Gina (Lynskey), also strive to adjust to small-town living. Equipped for the many inherent challenges of New York, the members of the tight-knit family are ill prepared for the different set of obstacles that their new community presents.

The team behind the new documentary "Obit" which is about the obituary department at the NY Times, director Vanessa Gould & producer Caitlin Mae Burke. At The New York Times, a particular team of writers is entrusted with reflecting upon the luminaries, icons, and world leaders of our day. Here, we are introduced to those responsible for crafting these unequaled obituaries. As we are taken through their painstaking process, we learn about the pressures accompanying a career spent shaping the story of a life.
