We are thrilled to have as our guest journalist, activist and comedian Francesca Fiorentini as we recap Michael Moore’s latest documentary Fahrenheit 11/9. Francesca is known famously for her work on AJ+ Newbroke. As with most Sup Doc episodes we have differences, lot of laughs, in-depth moments, no real conclusions and we get schooled in “postcolonial feminist theory”!
On this latest season of the Organist, some interview segments had to do with documentaries, so they offered to let us share these segments with you! This first episode of the season focuses on “The Voice of God” so we hear about Penelope Spheeris and her partner SIN.
Documentary films often have the authoritative “Voice of God” style of narration, which presents an omniscient, impartial, deep-voiced narrator. Someone often associated with this is voice over artist Peter Coyote, best known as the narrator of Ken Burns’ documentaries. Peter Coyote continues to work as an actor, voiceover artist, and narrator. He lives in Northern California.
On Ep 83 we sat down with comedian Alex Hooper to talk about the Academy award-winning documentary Man On Wire. Alex has a strong connection to this doc because he recently started slacklining and as we discover there is more than a casual connection between walking on a wire without a net and performing comedy!
Our guest is author Tony Dushane and we talk about 20,000 Days On Earth the film that examines a day in the life of music icon Nick Cave. We get into music, religion, creativity and even writing tips from Tony, who teaches novel writing at UCLA Extension. Tony DuShane is the author and screenwriter of Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk.
On Ep 77 host Paco Romane sits down with comedian/writer Molly Sanchez to talk, dissect and deconstruct the doc Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond. Due to technical difficulties host George Chen couldn’t attend so Paco and Molly talk hella smack about George but also get into comedy, movies, writing and much more!
