This week, Ian brings you into the front row of his first press conference, a star-studded panel for the wonderful new film Southside with You! Listen as writer/director Richard Tanne, stars Tika Sumpter, Parker Sawyers, Vanessa Bell Calloway, and Grammy winning executive producer John Legend talk about the pride and pitfalls of chronicling Barack and Michelle Obama's first date. No sleepy-eyed, canned, junket responses here: this event is packed with lively answers to engaging questions.
Also, Ian shares some birthday wishes, recommends a couple of podcasts and home video releases, and gives details on both the Music Box Theatre's one-night-only "Composer's Cut" orchestration of Lucio Fulci's The Beyond with Fabio Frizzi (in person!) and the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival!
Regardless of which side of the political fence you're on, Episode 147 will give you something to believe in!
