"Especially in. These times is like. Do we need another film? That tells us how bad it is. Or do we need a film that gets us up out of our chairs somehow and and rouses us action? I have a lot of thoughts on this. I mean, one is you know, if you're gonna make a film that is aiming at getting people have chosen resins action, you'd better be connected to social movements and know, what it is you're connecting people to and and be connected to something strategic. Otherwise, what are you? What are you creating this energy for right? Is it just sort of catharsis? You know, what is what is your connection to organizing? What what is your theory of change? What is your strategy? So this is interesting take your you say because I think sometimes documentaries. Get knocked for being too prescriptive that here's the environmental documentary and in the credits. Here's the website. You're supposed to go to. Here's the five point plan of action. And sometimes documentaries will be criticized for being too programmatic. Yes. Because I'm five point point of action is just tweet, you know, it's not it's not good organizing, or it's not, you know, hard heading enough. I wanted to make. So, you know, I started this film in two thousand fourteen thousand fifteen and for me, you know, I I understood the sort of political crisis could be on the horizon. But I also thought we were in a sort of moment sort of alot, I didn't know things would get so exciting. And I wanted to make a film that instead of ending with his big rousing protests and epic music, and this idea that we can, you know, hold hands and March into a new world, what if you have a phone where the spirits more the day after the day after the big March the moment after the U fauria when the challenge is what do you do that energy is dissipated? But the problem is still there. So it's not explicitly said in the phone, but that was one reason I went to Miami, Florida. There's you know, quite a few scenes shot there because it was that was the place after the murder of Mark. Were black lives matter sort of came to the forefront and community activists were really engaging with this question of what would you do when media attention has moved on? And and you're having a hard time actually, pressuring elected officials to do anything. Right. Let's let's start there and and engage with the community instead of ending with the protest. So I didn't I really was adamant that I didn't want to end the film with a sense of false hope. Right. And with the kind of emotional string-pulling. And and I wanted the hope to be hard earned in the hope is in ideas in the hope is in people, you know, engaging with these issues over, you know, hundreds and hundreds of years and not giving up on the struggle. So that was something. So I just wanted the hope to not be too easy. And and that was something that from the beginning. I was I just really wanted it to end on a on a more ambivalent note, even if even if that might make some people in happy, but to me, it's more honest, right? Because it's it's a daily practice. It's not going to get solved and the goal isn't just to get the people. We like an office. And then go back, you know to sleep politically. Right. It's it's it's something that has to be carried forward at something on the horizon that we're going to have to constantly be reaching towards. So this idea that. Either could be one epic cathartic action or away to tweet ourselves into a real democracy to seems false to me. Thank Astra Taylor for speaking. With me.

"I wanna ask you about the the conversation going on now about Russia and Trump and collusion. You know, there are journalists out there who say. We're spending too much time thinking about Russia to the extent of of knowing other things that we should be paying more attention to about Trump what your perception. My perception is that in the current debate and I mean in a way, this was the reason for making movie is that in the current debate where not looking enough at what structurally happening with our media and we're not. I mean, we are talking about fake news, but the wave at Borussia influence on that on this kind of disorienting in in creating kind of disorienting atmosphere is I think, not being grappled with enough in one way in which is not being grappled with is, and this is a personal question I have so that I don't exactly at this film sort of an investigation of how do we make, how what do we make of fact that someone like our t. self applies term propaganda but they don't run from it. They don't denied exactly. Sometimes they do, but they don't. But they, you know, there's a shot in the film. It was one few shots and actually filmed, and it's at the Moscow airport, and it's a, it's a billboard for our t. that says. Keep watching to find out who we're going to hack. Next. Beware propaganda bulwark is at work, and I think there's a move there that that's really, I mean it sort of profound, but we haven't figured out what to do with that when when people will openly own the fact that this is biased manipulative, but but then tar everyone else will the same brush. So what do you do? How do you, because obviously, any demarcation this is what's being discussed with having RT being classified as a propaganda outlet, right. Well, what does what does that achieve? Because it also gives much more much more leverage to votes into kind of to point out the double standards involved in the west. And then to basically identify the BBC in new and New York Times. It's propaganda and having have them register in Russia and do all these things. So I think that to me is the big unknown cloud. That we should be grappling with a bit more to get clarity on these central issues about collusion. I think that a lot of debates I, I mean, a lot of conversations collusion. I don't necessarily find. That interesting because they all seem to be too hinge on the legal definition of collusion. And you know, Trump or anyone has party have no idea that any definitions, it's a little bit of a kind of apples and oranges scenario. So so so that's my, my general of having consumed an absurd amount of fake news, no last year and sat with this material and look that the way that it worked that I think that we that the well of figuring out how did they how many kind of Twitter bots and how many, how many people how many users were reached. I think we've kind of exhausted that well numerically and ultimately we're not. They're not gonna tell us that much. It's not going to. We're not gonna be able to figure out what percentile, how much swum Michigan or anything like that. But we haven't talked about is precisely the more profound corrosive effect. This has on our whole info sphere. I wanna thank Maksim posed Roeken for speaking with me, you can watch the short version of our new president at field of vision, dot org.

"I'm thinking about this era of real secrecy around homosexuality. And then I think about the last twenty years of different kinds of openness around sexuality, and I recognize hem, many gay men have been served crucial to to that period. I think like Dan savage or the writers of sex in the city or even George, Michael kind of writing the anthem of freedom and and feels ironic that a class of men who historically had to be secretive about their sexuality. Today, I think are instrumental in helping everyone opened up about their sexuality. Well, the one thing we started this conversation talking about Gloria to all, and I think we can go back to him here. This is another reason that he was hero of mine when he was nineteen. I think he published a book called the city and the pillar which was his third novel he might be in his early twenties was third novel is very young man just out of awards hill. This was the first novel to have a character who was frankly, homosexual or same sex oriented in English language, a. And he was celebrated for it in some circles, and he was excoriated for it and others. And he frequently said at infinitum almost every day I ever spent with him. He reminded me that the New York Times refused to review any other book by him for the next twenty years after the city and the pillar was reviewed in the times negatively. So. This is a staunching for us to realize that this happened within our parents and grandparents lifetime. That'd be doll was really courageous and. Sir. Mccowan. I think he said to me approached him one day and score. You really need to do more for the movement. And mcallen came out rather late in life. So doll, I was outraged by this and he said, well, I think I've done enough. I destroyed my career. Referring to his early career where he really did have to write under a pseudonym after that. So it's think it's very easy to forget how bad things were and how really brave and fearless you needed to be to be open in any way about your true identity. And this is really what the movie's about the movie is to remind us that there was a world not that long ago. That was in many ways centered around Hollywood in the studio system that required us all to live white picket fence lives or straight washed existences. And this was a really oppressive terrible time and you couldn't do or say much about it. And if you did, you ran the risk of ruining her life. So I think if you see the story of Scotty Bowers in that context. This man who is easily dismissed as a pimp, or you know, a procure or like a former male hustler becomes a very different kind of figure in a very different light who really did something very brave and heroic and helpful to a lot of people who I have seen with my own eyes. And in many interviews really deeply appreciated him for it that he's alive to tell his own story. He's ninety five this month, and sharp has ever I think is extraordinary. And I think that. Everyone should have opened years and is to taking this in and not so quickly dismiss it as Hollywood shenanigans or something unseemly or unsightly. Because I think there's actually a human rights message at the core of what Scotty Bowers did. I think that all of the people who helped him and participated and took advantage of his services were in a way, perhaps unwittingly committing a political act by flouting the law which you had to do in most cities when you were a queer person in that era. So this is a window into a forgotten world. I don't think we can just say good Britain's to that and then not think about it anymore. I think we really need to look back and seriously think about how we got. Now and who the people were goddess here. I want to thank Matt turn our for speaking with me, his film Scotty and the secret history of Hollywood is now playing theaters. This interview was recorded at the school of visual arts at the MFA social documentary program. Thanks to our team series producer, Sarah modo sound recordist Eric Spink sound mixer, Tom mica and web designer cross strategy.

"So what I feel like I almost pissed off every single person that I interviewed because I was just, we hear you on camera when you're seeing now with gasoline. Horvath you say, you look a little nervous, which doesn't seem like the kind of thing you say to put someone at ease, but she but it was true. She was. She wasn't herbs and Kathleen is amazing. I remember, you know, she was so so honest and so vulnerable and she, she made herself so vulnerable in camera, and I have such affection for all of the characters in this movie because each interview felt almost like a therapy session, I think for me as well them and specially Kathleen, I think. 'cause Kathleen was the person who, as she says in the movie, never really. Like she had gotten real closure. She does expected Nick really betrayed her. And she'd expected Nikko somehow acknowledged at some point is life or in their lives, and she never got that. And then I recently saw Kathleen and she came to dock. And why. Russia came to NYC. She came to Hamptons, and she came to true false and truthful. She watched. I think twelve movies and Kellyanne is is incredible. And she had said to me certain at one point always been waiting for Nick to give me some kind of closure. But you know. After after the movie came out, he called me. He's like, cathlene. You did a great job. Baby did a great job, you know. And it was like as if he was just giving her a compliment as if she was still his tennis pupil and not really what the content of the great job was not at all. And and then she said that ever since the movie came out, she's been accepting invitations to player events. She's been going to film festival. She's been doing Cuny's and all the stuff she had never done before. And she felt like the movie actually given her a sense of closure that because it wasn't anything that Nick could ever give her. It was something that she did on her own. So that was actually one of the best things. And if I were to play devil's advocate against what I was saying earlier about the efficiency of documentary to make actual change, you know, every once in a while, I do think that certain things happen in production. Usually, from my perspective. Every production is a life altering experience. I never really thought about it from the perspective of the people who are being interviewed, but in certainly Kathleen's circumstance, she, this was cathartic experience for her. I think that's what she would say. And so that's that's, I think very cool. Thank Jason cone.

"Making the film i thought i'm gonna i'm not gonna use any of the music of whitney's songs only gonna use your voice soon you have all the isolated tracks just vocals i thought that would be a great concept because you know it's stripping away everything around her stripping away some of the some of the some of the instrumentation that sounds kind of a bit cheesy and period nabet and reducing it down to just that voice which is the source of all the strength and the emotion of the music but in the end i only did that on one one track i wanna dance with somebody which in the first half of it we do kind of capella but i think that i think that song the song that that now means the most to me i think is is i have nothing which is a song which we've had a great you know pretty much unknown live performance of that from early nineties which we use as the end credit music and critic video and when you hear that song after having all of this discussion and many people's opinions points of view on whitney and you get to the end of the film and it just feels like she is talking for herself at the end it and and the key line in that is take me for what i am and that seems like you know great message from her to the audience thanks kevin mcdonald for speaking with me his new film whitney is now playing in theaters released by roadside attractions this interview was recorded at the school of visual arts in the mfa social documentary department thanks to our team series producer sarah modo sound recordist eric spink sound mixer tom mica and web designer cross strategy our theme music is composed by andre williams and our executive producer is rafael
