Ep 614: Dan Sallitt Returns

May 22, 2020

[10 mins. 43 secs.] The filmmaker Dan Sallitt ("The Unspeakable Act") returns to the podcast; he was last on Episode 41. Dan's new feature called "Fourteen" and once again stars actor Tallie Medel as Mara who, along with friend Jo —in their twenties— have been close friends since middle school. Jo (Norma Kuhlinh), the more outgoing figure, is a social worker who runs through a series of brief but intense relationships. Mara, a less splashy personality than Jo, bounces among teacher aide jobs while trying to land a position in elementary education, and writes fiction in her spare time. Over the course of a decade, the more stable Mara sometimes tries to help, sometimes backs away to preserve herself, but never leaves behind her powerful childhood connection with Jo. You can stream "Fourteen" by visiting the distributor Grasshopper Films' website.

[1 hrs. 10 mins. 24 secs.] The closing track on this episode is called "April (Black and Blue)" by the music artist Gabrelle Marlena. Subscribe to her on Spotify.
