Ep 629: Ramona Diaz • Mario Furloni & Kate McLean

Aug 14, 2020

[4 mins. 35 secs.] Documentary filmmaker Ramona S. Diaz ("Imelda", "Motherland") makes her third appearance on the podcast. This time we discuss her latest film, "A Thousand Cuts" which is currently available at virtual cinemas. Nowhere is the worldwide erosion of democracy, fueled by social media disinformation campaigns, more starkly evident than in the authoritarian regime of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Journalist Maria Ressa places the tools of the free press—and her freedom—on the line in defense of truth and democracy. Produced, written and directed by Ramona S. Diaz.

[31 mins. 20 decs.] The first of a series of conversations on a new indie narrative feature called "Freeland". First up are the co=directors Mario Furloni and Kate McLean. Devi (Krisha Fairchild) has been breeding legendary pot strains for decades on the remote homestead she built herself. But when cannabis is legalized, she suddenly finds herself fighting for her survival. The film, which premiered at SxSW is continuing its festival journey. We will be chatting with stars Krisha Fairchild and Frank Mosley —both returning to the podcast— in the coming weeks.
