I had a nice chat with director Julia Haslett about this film last year, and also listed it in the Jaunuary CT issue as an indie film to keep eyes out for. I know from Julia that they are screening in New York and there was a kickstarter campaign designed to get more funds for distribution (and to clear rights for some of the music).

Todd and I discuss this documentary in our most recent podcast here.


SHOW NOTES:

  • 0:00 – Intro. Self-reflexive vs. biography
  • 10:06 – Understanding vs. Acting On
  • 18:10 – “I feel like there’s something you want me to say…”
  • 20:48 – “Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.”
  • 27:00 – Is “attention” the same as being a Christian “witness”?
  • 31:45 – Global vs. local; not burning out.
  • 34:22 – A philosophical dead end?
  • 42:25 – I go to extremes…
  • 49:30 – Concluding remarks.

So let's say I didn't want to buy an educational license, nor did I want to purchase public screening rights, but that I did want to actually buy the actual DVD - is that possible yet?
