90: The Dirties (2013) with Robin and Gorjan of the Badvice Podcast
This week, we explore the next wave of independent, outspoken Canadian filmmakers who are shaking things up. The hosts of the Badvice podcast, Robin and Gorjan bring us the debut feature of the "Bad Boy of Canadian Cinema" Matt Johnson.
For those of you that don't like spoilers, go watch the movie and stop reading...HERE!
We talk the ethics of filmmaking, finding the balance of humour when you're dealing with the difficult subject matter, and how unintentional moments can make your film even better. We also discuss the big TIFF controversy fired by the open letter Matt Johnson wrote to Cameron Bailey the artistic director of TIFF - and the way it changed the Canadian film landscape.
This week's end credit music us Best Coast's When I'm with you. Check out more on their website.
