Fresh Talk: Hattie Mae Williams

February 11th, 2016 · Comments

American dancer and choreographer Hattie Mae Williams talks about how the abandoned Miami Marine Stadium at the edge of Biscayne Bay has become a mecca for graffiti artists, musicians, dancers, and photographers. Designed by Cuban-born architect Hilario Candela and built in 1963 as a venue for powerboat racing, the iconic stadium was an active community gathering place before Hurricane Andrew damaged its poured concrete structure in 1992. Christian Salazar shot the dance film titled Culture Concrete (2014) that Williams performed with The Tattooed Ballerinas inside the cultural landmark.

Fresh Talk: Laurie Anderson

December 25th, 2015 · Comments

Artist Laurie Anderson talks about her new film Heart of a Dog in this episode recorded at The Wolfsonian museum on Miami Beach. The film brings together everything we love about Anderson’s experimental music, visual art, poetry, film, and photography: in her own voice, with her own artwork, animation and 8mm home video, and a score made of her own compositions, she tells an exquisite, heartbreaking story about her little dog Lolabelle.

Fresh Talk: Tameka Norris

March 19th, 2015 · Comments

Tameka Norris just produced her first feature-length film. She plays herself in Meka Jean: How She Got Good. The narrative has a lot in common with The Moviegover, a novel by Walker Percy. Like Walker Percy, Norris grew up in the Deep South, and went away to seek her fortune. Like Binx Bolling, the book’s protagonist, Meka Jean reveals what it means when New Orleans is the city you call home.

We recorded this conversation with Norris when her film debuted during the international exhibition Prospect.3 New Orleans, in 2014. She presented the project as a multi-chambered installation at May Gallery, a nonprofit art space in the district known as the Upper 9th Ward.

March 18th, 2013 · Comments

The 2013 South By South West Film Festival, in Austin, Texas, is the setting for this Fresh Talk feature. Cathy Byrd meets filmmakers Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin to learn more about Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, the documentary they recently completed.The film tells the story of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (Nadia), Maria Alyokhina (Masha), and Yekaterina Samutsevich (Katia), members of the radical feminist art collective Pussy Riot. In early 2012, the three were arrested and put on trial for performing a 40 second "punk prayer" inside Moscow’s main orthodox cathedral. The world has been calling for the young women's release ever since Nadia, Masha and Katia were detained, charged and imprisoned for the crime of religious hatred.
