Maryland Film Fest Preview

May 4, 2015

  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.
