The third of 4 conversations celebrating filmmaker Hal Hartley's first three feature films, "The Unbelievable Truth", "Trust", and "Simple Men" —aka The Long Island Trilogy— which is now available for the first time for purchase in a box set. You can make such a purchase on either Amazon or at halhartley.com. Still to come in the next week is a reunion with "Simple Men" actors Bill Sage and Robert Burke with Hal Hartley (back for his umpteenth visit).

[8 mins. 44 secs.] Karen Sillas has been acting in television and movies for several decades. In addition to her work with Hal (the short "Kid", "Trust", "Simple Men", "Flirt", and "Ned Rifle"), Karen also collaborated with filmmaker and playwright Tom Noonan (Episodes 333 & 373) on both the stage and film version of "What Happened Was...". Karen currently lives in Los Angeles and continues to act in film and on stage.
