My recent encounter with American filmmaker Craig Baldwin has now been entered into the Resonance FM schedules. As with previous interviews, it will initially go out in two parts over consecutive episodes of Imreadyformycloseup – on April 16 and 23 respectively at 5 pm. This will be followed by a one-hour IRMFCU special of the entire conversation on May 7 at 8.00 pm. Craig talks animatedly about ‘repurposed’ cinema, trash aesthetics, Ed Wood and the California mindset with some fascinating excursions into the thinking not only behind some of his earlier flicks such as Tribulation 99 and Spectres of the Spectrum, but his recent left-handed blockbuster Mock Up On Mu.
The May issue of The Wire also will feature my account of the conversation, inspired by the magical sounds of Korla Pandit – his spirit continues to watch over us all.
