American filmmaker Patrick Creadon who is primarily known for his work in documentaries. His first film, Wordplay, profiled New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz and premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. Then in 2016, Patrick directed ESPN" s 30 for 30 film, "Catholics vs. Convicts," about the October 15, 1988, Notre Dame-Miami football game. In this episode, we discuss Patrick's latest film, "The Loyola Project," about the historic 1963 Loyola Ramblers men's basketball national championship team and the racial barriers they faced and overcame on their incredible journey.

BrownTown reflects on the 2023 Chicago municipal elections and the importance of disrupting dominant media narratives with Morgan Elise Johnson, filmmaker, publisher, and co-creator of the TRiiBE, an award-winning digital publication and production company dedicated to reshaping the narrative of Black Chicago.Local, community, and especially radical and movement-based actors in radio, film, podcasts, and documentation have greatly disrupted the broader media landscape in the past decade for the better. BrownTown and Morgan discuss all the things from her presence on the WGN run-off election panel, the history and spectacle of political punditry, the real meaning of "tough on crime" rhetoric and what it obscures, to the harmful journalistic myth of objectivity and the violent status quo it upholds. How do we use these mediums, skills, experiences, and analyses to challenge the false/misinformed dominant narratives and uplift radical politics while continuing to access mass audiences in the ever-changing, fast-paced digital ecosystem? Here's their take. Originally recorded April 27, 2023.GUESTMorgan (she/her) is an independent filmmaker and publisher based in Chicago who is creating and preserving Black history. Most recently, she produced Unapologetic (2020). Morgan's documentary career was born at Northwestern University and grew at Milwaukee-based production house, 371 Productions, where she produced and co-directed her first documentary, There Are Jews Here (PBS/WORLD CHANNEL, 2016). She also associate produced a Virtual Reality exploration of abortion clinic harassment called Across The Line (2016) which premiered at Sundance Film Festival's New Frontiers exhibit. Her life and career evolved when she co-created The TRiiBE in 2018. Morgan has earned a spot on DOC NYC's 40 under 40 list (2021), the Rolling Stones Cultural Council and Forbes' 30 Under 30 Media Class of 2019.

In 2016, Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan premiered their first full length feature film called "Swiss Army Man" at Sundance Film Festival starring Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Little Miss Sunshine, The Batman) and Daniel Radcliffe (the Harry Potter series). It was about a man named Hank intent on killing himself before he finds a farting corpse on the beach and a bag of cheese puffs. It isn't long before Hank names this corpse Manny and discovers he is a swiss army man that will provide him a way out of being lost in the woods. At the time: Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan were known for directing music videos such as "Turn Down for What" by DJ Snake and Lil John, "Houdini" by Foster the People, and "Rize of the Pheonix" by Tenacious D. They were collectively known as The Daniels, and not many foresaw them going on to make the film "Everything Everywhere All At Once," which gave them worldwide acclaim and two Academy Awards including Best Director and Best Picture. The A24 Rocks crew takes a deep dive into this absurdist comedy that served as a pedestal for The Daniels to be one of the most respected directing duos in Hollywood. Caution: movie spoilers.

On today’s episode, I speak with Biet, who is the world-renowned meditation leader dubbed the “David Bowie of Meditation”. As a musician, Biet weaves the world of pop culture and spirituality, teaching practical applications of ancient spiritual wisdom. The teachings are featured in Biet’s best selling book, ‘Don’t Just Sit There!’ published by Simon & Schuster. Raised by a Shaman in New York City, Biet signed to Sony Records at the age of 19 as a singer/songwriter. Diving into a Rock & Roll lifestyle, Biet became a high profile DJ in the fashion and art scene in Manhattan. However, following a string of life changing events, including the sudden loss of her daughter, Biet turned to her lifetime study of meditation and launched the Guided By Biet event series. The meditation experience reached a contemporary audience in cultural spaces, including museums, hotels, and fashion shows. These groundbreaking events were scored by her own music and were the first time meditation was mixed with pop culture, creating the revolutionary new trend. Featured in Vogue, Forbes, ELLE, and TIME magazine, and as the resident meditation guru at The Sundance Film Festival, 1 Hotels, MoMA, and SoulCycle, Biet advises spiritual best practices for hotels and brands. Biet is best known for modernizing the spiritual path and has been called the "Meditation Guru for the next generation.” I had the lovely opportunity to connect with Biet at a gathering last year. We talk about the following and so much more! ✅ What “spirituality” means to her ✅ How her childhood shaped the way she saw the world, and in particular how her relationship with her father shaped her. ✅ Why finding a purpose larger than yourself is so important ✅ What it means to come back from difficult moments, and how can one deal with adversity? ✅ What attracted her to this space and what she thinks about modern spirituality ✅ What the “Guided By Biet” event series is - and why breakthwork is so important?

It is Black Maternal Health Week, and this week's episode provides context and value-based solutioning on how to address the alarming rise of maternal mortality in the U.S. We have horrifically poor maternal health outcomes in the African American population of our country, and it is directly attributable to a flawed design of our healthcare system juxtaposed with the presence of longstanding and systemic institutional racism. If there ever was an opportunity for improving health equity through value-based care, it is with this moral imperative to ensure the fundamental human right to have a safe and evidence-based childbirth that optimizes the chance of survival. On this week's podcast, you are going to hear from one of the leading voices in health equity, reproductive justice, and value-based maternal health. Our guest is Dr. Neel Shah, the Chief Medical Officer of Maven Clinic, the world's largest virtual clinic for family health care. He is also a visiting scientist at Harvard Medical School where he previously served as a professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive biology. Dr. Shah has been recognized with the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Humanitarian of the Year Award from the March of Dimes for his impact on maternal health in the United States. He is featured in the films Aftershock, which won the Special Jury Prize for Impact at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, and The Color of Care from the Smithsonian Channel and Executive Producer Oprah Winfrey. As a physician-scientist, Dr. Shah has written landmark academic papers on maternal health and health care policy, and contributed to four books, including as senior author of Understanding Value-Based Healthcare. He is listed among the "40 smartest people in health care" by the Becker's Hospital Review, and he currently serves on the advisory board of the National Institutes of Health, Office of Women's Health Research. In this podcast, we discuss a special documentary that Dr. Shah contributed to called “Aftershock”. This inspiring film on black maternal health equity turns pain into power and should be watched by all who strive to make a positive change in American healthcare. Join us on April 12th, for a screening of the Aftershock documentary and a discussion with other attendees. This podcast is dedicated to Shamony Gibson, Amber Rose Isaac, Kira Johnson, Maria Corona, Sha-Asia Semple, Cordielle Street, and the thousands of women who have lost their lives in the United States maternal health system.

Meg Smaker's 2022 documentary film about a de-radicalisation centre triggered such a backlash around the time of its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival that it was effectively blacklisted. But Jihad Rehab, later renamed The UnRedacted, has gone on to sell out screenings in America, receive support from presenters, audiences and prominent American Muslims. It played in New Zealand at the Doc Edge Film Festival last year and Smaker will attend a special one-off screening in Auckland in late April to launch this year's festival. The film follows four former Guantánamo Bay detainees who had been transferred and now detained by the Saudi Government in a 'rehab center,' to 'de-radicalize' them. Smaker says the participants gave consent to be filmed and were able to speak freely. But other film-makers, led mostly by Muslim women, argue it is an unethical project that does a disservice to its main characters.

DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley
Dennis is joined via Zoom by filmmaker Gregg Araki (The Living End, Nowhere, Mysterious Skin) to discuss the re-release and restoration of his mid-1990s cult classic The Doom Generation, which stars Rose McGowan, James Duval and Johnathan Schaech. Gregg talks about what it's been like to revisit the film, what makes each of his three leads perfect for their roles, how the film got the subtitle “A Heterosexual Movie,” and how and why he cast people like Christopher Knight from The Brady Bunch, Lauren Tewes from The Love Boat and Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss in cameo roles. Gregg also talks about the darker themes of the movie and how young people today seem ever more doomed than they did in the 90's, how he approaches sex scenes, watching the movie again with an audience at this year's Sundance Film Festival and whatever happened to the kick-ass belt buckle Jonathan Schaech wore in the movie. Other topics include: his recent forays into television with his series Now Apocalypse and short-term directing gigs on shows like American Gigolo and Dahmer, why he called his production company Desperate Pictures, the upside of film school, his punk rock roots and that time a fan told him that watching The Doom Generation actually made him gay. www.strandreleasing.com
Top Docs: Award-Winning Documentary Filmmakers
Like a classic sole meunière that pairs a beautiful filet of sole with a dash of butter and lemon, director Laura Gabbert's films (“City of Gold”) match glorious portraits of food with a brilliant and uniquely qualified storyteller. In the case of her new documentary “Food and Country”, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Laura partners with food icon Ruth Reichl who embarks on an ambitious quest to talk to a variety of stakeholders throughout the U.S. to find out what can be done to fix what is clearly a food system on the brink of collapse. Sitting down with Ken at Sundance to talk about her new film, Laura discusses the challenges of a creative collaboration that, due to the constraints of the pandemic, often took place via Zoom; the forces of change that are reshaping the food industry; and the innovative chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, and ranchers who, against long odds, are re-inventing themselves in order to continue to do what they love and feed the world in the process.

Voices of VR Podcast – Designing for Virtual Reality
Jessie Cohen started representing immersive stories back at Sundance 2013 when she was working for the Sundance Film Festival for the New Frontier section. She eventually transitioned from trying to represent every New Frontier project through the festival into working directly with virtual reality directors and artists who were exhibiting their work through Jessie Cohen PR and Consulting. She then came back to represent festivals like Sundance New Frontier, Venice Immersive, and London International Film Festival while also representing immersive storytellers as well as working with Chris Milk and Supernatural to represent the emerging market of VR fitness. Cohen spoke up at the Art of Reviewing Immersive Art and Entertainment panel at Venice Immersive that I was speaking at, and we had set an intention to find a time to capture more about her insights from having a front-row seat of navigating the relationship to the press and emerging artists and storytellers for the past decade. I had a chance to catch up with Cohen at SXSW where she recounts some of the highlights of coverage that she's been able to help facilitate, as well as reflect on how ultimately it comes down the stories and creative processes of these artists that keeps her engaged in this emerging market and ecosystem for immersive art and entertainment.

In this week's episode I am chatting with Martha Bennett Global Vice President of Marketing Excellence for 3M and Cedric Smith a welder out of Minnesota. 3M recently put out a documentary entitled Skilled that was released at the Sundance Film Festival, which highlights different industries in the Skilled Trades to bring awareness and information to the next generation. As most of you all know, there's a huge shortage of people across all industries of Blue Collared Trades. 3M is doing their part to get more people involved in the different industries. Checkout the Skilled film Here It will be available for streaming on Apple TV+, Google Play, Kanopy, Prime Video and The Roku Channel on May 3. It's being translated into French, French Canadian, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Castillian Spanish and Thai for promotion across 17 countries. In partnership with Teach For America, it will be shown in classrooms and supported by discussion guides to facilitate conversations about skilled trades. It debuted at an officially sanctioned 2023 Sundance Film Festival event and has been accepted for AmDocs and the Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival. Other film festival submissions are in the works.
