Slamdance 2024 - Welcome to the Enclave + Legend of El Cucuy
Holy shit, this is a fun episode! We're covering 2 Slamdance Film Festival short films that are frightening in very different ways.Legend of El Cucuy is a short film about a monster that kidnaps disobedient children at night. Director Cynthia Garcia Williams sits down with us to talk about the importance of casting Afro-Latinos and incorporating Spanish into the film, how Jordan Peele influenced the imagery of El Cucuy, and the first time she learned about El Cucuy as a kid.Welcome to the Enclave is a short film about two Texas sisters who flee to the metaverse to escape the pandemic, until their digital utopia gets taken over by internet trolls. Director Sarah Lasley and star Brenna Palughi shed some light on how Sarah's mom was an inspiration for the short, the beauty and freedom of working with your best friend, and the connection between breastfeeding and Carly Simon's Coming Around Again.Follow director Cynthia Garcia Williams on IGFollow director Sarah Lasley on IGFollow talent Brenna Palughi on IGSupport the showThanks for listening and for your support!

Sundance 2024 - As We Speak, Seeking Mavis Beacon, and the Red Carpet Premiere of The American Society of Magical Negroes
This week we're highlighting three Sundance Film Festival films that deal with the effects of racism in America.As We Speak is a documentary that follows Bronx rap artist Kemba as he explores how rap lyrics are being weaponized in the criminal justice system. Director J.M. Harper and subject Kemba discuss how the film is like a song, the inadequacies of the criminal justice system, and how the story is not over.Seeking Mavis Beacon is a documentary that follows the investigation into what happened to one of the most influential Black women in technology who has been missing from the public eye since 1995. Director/investigator Jazmin Jones and associate producer/investigator Olivia McKayla Ross sit down with us to share how they met, how they learned to lean into the discomfort of the process, and servile fembots and marginalized bodies in the tech industry.Finally, we close things out at the red carpet premiere of The American Society of Magical Negroes, with fun chats with director Kobi Libii, and stars Justice Smith and David Alan Grier.Follow director J.M.

Slamdance 2024 - Baby, Dosh, and Restorage
We are at the Slamdance Film Festival bringing you three short films that deal with the complicated nature of family issues.Baby is a charming short film that follows what happens when a woman with down syndrome wants to have a baby. Director/producer James Di Martino and writer/producer Llewellyn Michael Bates explain why they found it important to tell this story, the inspiration behind the fun party scene, and what a joy it was to make.In Dosh, a hard-of-hearing mother must decide how to get help for her husband's mental illness after her son's life is put at risk. Director/writer Radha Mehta and talent Renu Razdan share how cultural differences and shame play a big part of this story, putting disability and bipolarism on the forefront, and what it takes for a woman to feel more empowered.Restorage is the pilot episode for a series about a man who's father has passed away and left him an old storage unit that has the ability to fix anything that's been broken. Co-creator/director E'an Verdugo and co-creator/producer Caleb Davis share how a  storage facility became a main character in the story, how covid almost destroyed their shooting schedule, and their secret to filming a sci-fi story on a budget.Follow director/producer James Di Martino on IGFollow writer/producer Llewellyn Michael Bates on IGFollow Dosh on IG Follow director/writer Radha Mehta on IGFollow actor Renu Razdan on IGFollow director E'an Verdugo on IGFollow producer Caleb Davis on IGSupport the showThanks for listening and for your support!

Slamdance 2024 - The Death Tour and Nina is an Athlete
Welcome to the Slamdance Film Festival 2024! Today we're talking about two great documentaries that highlight the passion and determination that it takes to be an athlete.The Death Tour follows wrestling hopefuls in the most grueling tour in wrestling, as they cross northern Canada (in the heart of winter) in order to entertain remote indigenous communities. We sit down with Executive Producer and wrestling great Chris Jericho, and directors Sonya Ballantyne and Stephan Peterson, to discuss the deep significance of the Death Tour (as it celebrates its 50th year!), the difficult task of choosing which wrestlers to highlight, and how a certain director reacted to being mistaken for a wrestler.Nina is an Athlete follows an Israeli wheelchair badminton champion, Nina Gorodetsky, as she attempts to fulfill her dream of making it to the Paralympics, while being a full time mother who is pushing 40. Director Ravit Markus shares the pros and cons of making a film about family, how she accidentally made a nontraditional sports documentary, and the importance of being your biggest advocate as an independent filmmaker.For more information on The Death Tour, head to their website and follow them on IGFor more information on Nina is an Athlete, head to their websiteFollow Chris Jericho on IG and YTFollow director Sonya Ballantyne on IGFollow director Stephan Peterson on IGFollow director Ravit Markus on IG--Thanks for listening and for your support!

American Fiction Director Cord Jefferson
Do yourself a favor and watch American Fiction! Cord Jefferson's directorial debut hilariously follows a frustrated novelist (Jeffrey Wright) who is tired of the industry profiting from "Black" entertainment that relies on offensive tropes- yet somehow finds himself in the middle of that hypocrisy.We sat down with Cord to discuss Erasure, the book that the film is based on, and the connection he felt that prompted him to write the script. Then he shares how he combines comedy with drama, the score that ties it all together (thanks to composer Laura Karpman), and how strong women in his life helped him battle toxic masculinity. And then we cap it all off by convincing him to move to the Bay Area!For American Fiction showtimes, click hereFollow Cord Jefferson on IGFollow American Fiction on IGRead Cord's hilarious Eater article on Las Vegas hereSound design and audio engineering on this episode by Kayla Anchell--This episode was brought to you by Village Well Parenting.  Get their New Year No Yelling Challenge for a calmer connection with your kids for only $10 with promo code bitchtalk  at checkout. --Support Bitch Talk's return to the Sundance Film Festival here--Thanks for listening and for your support!

Reality Winner Director Sonia Kennebeck
Reality Winner is an incredible documentary about one of the youngest whistleblowers in US history, and now she's finally able to tell her own story. At the age of 25, Reality Winner was sentenced to 63 months in prison, the longest ever imposed in federal court for an unauthorized release of government information to the media. And after following her story for 5 years, director Sonia Kennebeck has revised her original documentary (United States vs. Reality Winner) to include exclusive footage of Reality's release from prison (on June 2nd, 2021) and her first official interview.

Basic Bitching with NPR's Aisha Harris
This week we sit down over drinks at Oakland's Room 389 with NPR's Aisha Harris! We find out how she became a film and pop culture critic (after a brief stint in a Broadway musical with Sally Struthers!), how she became one of the hosts of NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour, and obviously get into all things pop culture. But we also talk about why we love her new book, Wannabe: Reckonings With The Pop Culture That Shapes Me, and the unfortunate (but hilarious) issue she had while recording the audiobook. She shares her thoughts on everything from Will and Jada, to post film Q and A's, the Sex and the City reboot, and her very specific definition of a Zaddy.

Cat Person Director Susanna Fogel
Cat Person is a film about a college student going on a date with an older man that evolves into all of the potential horrors of modern dating. It's based on a viral short story from the New Yorker in 2017, and six years later, it's as relevant as ever. We got to chat with director Susanna Fogel about the grey area of dating that most of us can relate to, how she was able to direct one of the more uncomfortable sex scenes we've ever seen, and her secret trick to cast bonding. And then she caps off our conversation by reliving her own real life bad date story!Cat Person is in theaters October 6th.

Basic Bitching - LIVE from Old Skool Cafe
This #BasicBitch was recorded live from one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco, the Old Skool Cafe, a youth run jazz-themed supper club. The food is delicious, the service is wonderful, the ambiance is transporting, and the live music- you'll hear for yourself.We dive into our IMAX experience watching the newly restored Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense (out in theaters now! Click here for showtimes), and the pros and cons of the 415 Club at Oracle Park. Then we share out outrage over the recent article attacking Martin Short, Drew Barrymore and Bill Maher being scabs (even though they've both backtracked as of the posting of this episode #neverforget), and Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher doing too much.--Thanks for listening and for your support!

Basic Bitch - US Open, Gasoline Rainbow, and Labor Day Hijinks
This #BasicBitch was recorded on location at the Mini Bar in San Francisco, and we're excited to finally share that we're in a movie! It's a brief cameo in the film Gasoline Rainbow directed by the Ross Brothers that just premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Take a listen for all the behind the scenes info on why we were asked to be in the film, where it all took place, our unique (yet familiar) experience on set, and when you can potentially watch it for yourself. Next we discuss the Hungry Ghosts art show at the Mini Bar in the Western Addition neighborhood in San Francisco (brought to you by Storied: San Francisco and running through October 9th), and our Labor Day hijinks that started at Fleetwood and ended at the Happy Lounge. We dive into which sport is making us happy and which sport is pissing us off, and cap it all off with  our moments of pleasure. Enjoy!--Thanks for listening and for your support!

Basic Bitch - Eat the Frites! Euro travels, New York, Outside Lands + more
Take us back to our separate trips to Europe this year. Ange talks about her month long Spring visit to Germany, Brussels, and Amsterdam while Erin talks about her recent trip to Barcelona, Puglia (Italy), and Perchtoldsdorf (Austria). Then Ange dives into her quick trip to New York (she hadn't been back since 2003 y'all) and why it was a last minute decision. We wrap it up with Erin's somewhat annual Outside Lands jaunt peppered with beignet's, bounce, and her new obsession - The Foo Fighters (specifically Dave Grohl). This recording took place at one of our favorite bars in San Francisco, Zam Zam - which has a real jukebox filled with music by Nina Simone, Bill Withers, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Dr. John and so many more great musicians. Zam Zam also has one of our favorite bartenders - local artist Kundan Baidwan who first appeared on our show during our tribute Anthony Bourdain crawl back in 2018.  Y'all, on a somber note, we are devastated by the climate destruction that has wreaked havoc on Maui. It's a special place for Erin and her husband, Jeff and we are shocked at the loss of life, small businesses, and generations of Hawaiian's. If you have any extra money to give, we strongly encourage you to give to Hawaii Community Foundation. Thank you.--Thanks for listening and for your support!

Writer/Musician Thao Nguyen
It was months in the making but we finally got to chat with musician and writer Thao Nguyen! We saw Thao perform live IN A CHURCH earlier this year at the SXSW festival down in Austin and immediately knew we had to have her on. Thao's energy, lyrics, and musicianship is a thing to experience and we have been so energized to talk with her that this interview did not disappoint. In this chat we get Thao's origin story, why and how she landed in San Francisco in the mid 2000's, where she gets her inspiration for her song lyrics, and how we are going to start the Church of Thao. If you haven't listened to Thao's music you can head to her website here   and if you want to read her writing you can sign up for her substack here.Follow Thao on IGSee Thao in person hereWatch Thao on PBS's Southern Storytellers and Southern Sounds--Thanks for listening and for your support!

Randall Park - Director of Shortcomings
Randall Park is even more lovely in person than he is on screen! Ange sits down with him at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco to discuss his feature length directorial debut, Shortcomings, based on the graphic novel by Adrian Tomine. The film follows three young  Asian Americans living in the Bay Area as they navigate life, relationships, and (hopefully) their own personal growth.Randall shares his reaction to reading the novel in 2007, AAPI representation through the years, and the great debate that every Asian American has had about the film Crazy Rich Asians. He shares his love for some of the Bay Area musicians that are part of the film's score, and the differences between filming in NY versus Berkeley. Then we go back to his time at UCLA, majoring in Asian American Studies, and founding a comedy troop with friends who he eventually joined forces with to launch the production company, Imminent Collision. Finally, he gets into Hollywood gatekeepers, his work philosophy, and what film he loves that would piss off Ben, the cinephile main character in Shortcomings.Shortcomings opens in theaters on August 4th, get tickets here--on-site audio producer: Josh BrumleyThanks for listening and for your support!

This is a film that makes us proud to be from the Bay! Earth Mama follows a pregnant young single mother of two who embraces her Bay Area community as she determines the fate of her family.Director Savanah Leaf sits down with us to explain how this film was born from her short film The Heart Still Hums, the meaning of the title, and how writing the screenplay was a form of therapy. We were also joined by Bay Area Hip Hop artist Tia Nomore who shares why she decided to try her hand at acting, how this role spoke to her real life experiences as a new mom, and what it was like to take acting cues from Erika Alexander. They then share what makes the locations in the film so special, the healing power of nature, and how they hope this film will spark a greater conversation about the problems within the system, and the realities of motherhood.Earth Mama opens in SF at the Roxie Theater on July 7th, and nationwide on July 28th.
