Maryland Film Fest Preview
The Maryland Film Festival runs May 6th through May 10th in Baltimore, and we welcome Signal film critic Josh Slates to the program for a preview of the highlights.
John Waters joins us to unveil his personal pick for the festival, (a movie guaranteed to make you think twice the next time you eat a chicken leg). Baltimore filmmaker Matt Porterfield drops in to talk about his new short film, Take what You Can Carry. We meet Olivia Wyatt, who’s made an experimental documentary about a remote sea-faring tribe in Southeast Asia. And Matthew Bowden talks with us about his film, Spare Rooms, a coming-of-age story that takes place in a same-sex household in the Midwest during the height of the Reagan era. Plus, conversations with filmmakers Alison Bagnall, Todd Rohal, and Nathan Silver.
