"It's Kate Winslet, Leslie Adam Jr and Steven Young. Who's some no from the walking dead. Other know from his film burning or polka, And he has a new film called Men Ar e a 20 for putting out which is wonderful, which won the Grand Jury prize and the audience award at Sundance. So we're really excited to have Steven Young do that as well. How's my bad? I hit the delete button by mistake. Another glass. You glad you for that back in there for and now, in addition to virtual screenings made these films are in competition for best narrative feature documentary and short What are some of the things that judges look for when they are when they're screening films? Well, our mission from the very beginning has been To showcase film by emerging filmmakers with new voices, and that is still the case today. We're really excited that ever since the beginning, we've given out over a million dollars in cash and goods and services to the winners of our competition. And we're very proud that we're going to continue that. Even in this insane year, there will be award winners, which is very nice for filmmakers. I know and keeps us on track as to you know what our true mission is here for the Hamptons Film Festival. David, you have the premiere US premiere of I am Greta, which documents climate activist gratitude. Berg's rise to prominence. It's in this air, Land and sea initiative that and had mentioned earlier. Can you explain what that initiative ISS? Yeah, it's a serious of a program we've been doing for a number of years now of films that focus on environmental issues. As an mentioned we have a signature program. That's one of them. We have one on compassion. Justice, an animal rights on one Views from Long Island, which is films by Long Island Artists or Long Island subjects, and the Air, Land and sea program is one that we think is great in our audiences have really connected with and one that we do year round screenings with because ultimately, even though the five day festival that were actually seven days here, it's usually find it. The festival that we're about to mount is the biggest program that we do all year all year long. Um, Hamptons film is a year round organization, and we do screening throughout the Eric, particularly with the Air, Land and sea program. So I am Greta, which is the U. S premiere of a film, which just debuted at the Venice Film Festival in competition is about credit timber again. It's it's It's a perfect fit for this program. We're excited about it. What insight do we get into Greta from this? This film she's had, so we've had so many press reports about her. What insights will we get? Well, if you're going to find out, please actually and watched it more recently than I did. I watched it over the summer and yes, I did. I did. I was. I was so happy that someone had the foresight to Follow her around on that insane press tour that she actually did You see Greta who as who She really is. She's a young adult to the young girl with a passion. And started off this passion with her family and felt so compelled that she had to do something about it. She was sort of a one woman person sitting in front of her own. Um, town Hall doing a protest and which turned into this massive movement, But what you do see is that she's really a young girl, but really look too. Adults, meaning all of us. To listen and hear what they're trying to say and try to be that voice to make change. And I just love getting to know her and understanding who she is, and it just gives me so much. Um, happiness and hope for our youth. My guests are anxious on executive director and David Nugent, artistic director of the Hamptons International Film Festival, and I said international in there. What are some of the international films that you're excited to present? Wow. There are a kind one of one that I'd really like to highlight is the film The documentary Gunda by Victor Kostikov SKI, which is An incredible movie about a pig named Gunda. But it is a gorgeous black and white film with no dialogue that follows a pig. A one legged chicken and some cows and you will never be the same after you watch it. How about even you want to hit on another one? Sure, there's a film called Collective, which we love. It's a Romanian film, which documents the aftermath of a fire that took place in Bucharest a number of years ago, and it's an incredible feat of investigative journalism. It's called collective. That's one that that I'm also really excited. About and then also Indiana by Christian Petzold. He's really one of the great filmmakers of the world, and he has his new film that we're screening. Those are a couple and then also, I would mention this film the truffle hunters. Which one wins by two American filmmakers. It takes place over in Italy, and it follows a group of largely old men and their dogs who run out into the mountains looking for truffles, and it is one of the most Charming, sweet and wonderful films. That is sure to put a smile on your face after you see it, and it makes me long to be out of my house and running around with And you know, we should have lots of films about animals this year, too, So that's that's exciting for all the dog and animal lovers out there and you mentioned the winning talks and I want to follow up on them because they're sort of more educational conversations on film and industries. The whole One. What are some of the conversations do you hope to have this year? And why do you think this is an important component of a film festival? Some festivals one or, of course, to bring films from all over the world your audiences and also to find discover new voices, but it's important for the film makers themselves. To meet each other and to meet other people in the industry. It's for a new industry that is worldwide. It's hard for filmmakers 80 come out from doing their own projects are being stuck in editing rooms and really Get to know their colleagues and I know film festival personally as a film producer. Make that happen, And it's also important for the audience to hear these filmmakers talk about their films. And together talk about their films. We always do. Q and A's after films, but So have them share their experiences together within one panel is also a Boer indefinite lightning look at the struggles that every filmmaker faces. Um, and to take, you know, in depth Look at the process. So we do have a panel about with our competition filmmakers, many of our competition filmmakers On it. We also have partnered with sag indeed on their executive director to pull yet more filmmakers together to have a discussion. More about their trials and tribulations in triumph that they make facing. They're making their films and then another journalist. Ah is talking with several other filmmakers but mostly producers who have films in the festival. So you have three opportunities to hear a lot of filmmakers talk together about their processes and Changing. Landscape of this industry. And you mentioned against even Yoon in Minori. You have Kate Winslet, who's playing a paleontologist in 19th, Century England and am a night and in the closing film this It sounds really exciting. Leslie Odom Jr is playing Sam Cooke. In one night in Miami, and that's closing the festival. Tell us a bit more about this film, David why you felt like it was a good a good book end. Yes. So this is a film that's directed by Regina King and written by Kemp Powers, and based on the play of the same name, And on one night in in 1964, after caches, Clay, I think at the age of 22 became the world champion boxer. He went and celebrated in a hotel room with Jim Brown and Sam Cooke and Malcolm X and 54 of them so that the movie imagines the conversations that they would have had that night after an extraordinary amount of research that Kemp ours did..

"And I took her home. And how old is she she. She just turned thirty four. She just she's so I was thinking one of my friends asked me because I didn't know and I was like I don't know probably I was thinking like twenty. She looked so so young and she's just so she didn't really have a childhood so he gets to in the video that I saw her. She's like in her room and it looks very young young. But that's in that that's that's special. That's because she never had that she's never had so she's thirty four and now she life now. She has a mom and dad right like goosebumps right now because to. I want people to where the video that y'all showed. I put it on my instagram. But does that the video James Video that you showed at the event live somewhere as is it on our website. It's on your website okay. I didn't know what I if I had just posted like a special thing of some video that someone had taken on the age of our website. So Jamie story just encourage all to go. Watch that video because I think It will help you have a better understanding of I. I mean hopefully even after hearing Stephen Talk You have a better understanding that it always starts somewhere. It's not as simple as you know. Oh go get a job But Jamie was sold as a baby by her mother. The day her mother walked down at the hospital with. Yeah sold it to her GRANDPA. It was also the mothers drug dealer. Okay yeah crazy. Then he took her well paid for and then kept her in a basement. Who she he was eleven years old when she broke a window out ran away right and from the time she was eleven until the day I met her? She was on the streets and then she was on the streets because because she had she escaped as a prisoner being held captive by her own grandfather. Who bought her from her mom so that her mom could buy drugs right so like sit on that first second the next time you drive by somebody on the side of the road homeless she literally had no choice right ever in her life and never even though she he is thirty four? We have come to realize that we're dealing with a maturity level. That's not even close to that. In a lot of ways in some ways it is because has a ver experiences. She had to grow up real fast and other part of the part she never got to experience so she's getting to experience them for the first time we just celebrated celebrated her birthday. Was the first birthday cake. This young lady that ever had in her life first birthday party first birthday present Christmas. It's like we're dealing with a twelve year old. Owed you know because this is all brand new to her. We went Christmas. She tree shopping the other night. And she's going up and down the aisles at home and she's singing singing Christmas carols and she's going dad. I love this. I'm never gotten to do this. I didn't know all this stuff existed. So it's it's been a joy way for us to to to be a part of it and she's she's an amazing young lady They asked her in an interview yesterday. You know what's your future hold. And we have told her one thing she doesn't have to be in a hurry. Ready to figure it out. She was very sick. Jamie's five seven in the day. I met her She weighed ninety. Eight pounds And you could see the scars all over her from the abuse years and years and years so took her to the emergency room The the doctor came back back twenty minutes later and said she's not going anywhere and he says he might get ready for the long haul and I said what are we looking at and he said it could be months. She had pneumonia double pneumonia. She had mercer inner lungs. She had an infected hartwall and she had full vomits so we didn't know whether she was going to make it or not But we we weren't gonNA deserter and Lo and behold is only. God can do less than two weeks later. Her team of doctors. This comes walking in the room and they said we don't know how you got here but you're going home. And she looked dead off at them and she he said I know how I got here. I said I am loved by the greatest doctor that there ever was because Andy my wife life had the joy and privilege of leading to Christ there in that hospital bed on the day. She looked at her with tears in her eyes and said I'm scared and my wife said why she says I'm afraid of dying and she said you're not gonNA die. Why would you be? She said well if I do. I won't go to heaven even in my wife look better and said we can take care of that and led her to Christ. I'd been out in the hallway returning returning phone calls and when I came back in. They're both sitting there in the hospital. Bed Tears in their eyes. And I'm going but they had these smiles on their face and I said what's what's going on and my wife Danner said you WanNa tell him and she goes dad. I just got saved and later on I had the joint privilege of being able to baptize her But she's now her. Aides is non transmittable and undetectable. She weighs one hundred and fifty pounds and she's just just an amazing young lady and to to know where I know she has been for her to be able to even function in normal society as well as she has is nothing short of a miracle. Well well well I appreciate you coming on to talk with us and sharing all of these all the things that we talked about. I feel like and somebody listening right. Now everybody listening can have a takeaway. They can't all be a Mike. They can't all be a u but I can different but we can all make a difference in. Yeah now this starfish Bahrain in my head of like that one person the one on one. But you're one on one doesn't have to be deep dive into everything and trying to be but if you feel called to do that I would encourage you to listen to that. If you feel the little whispers like listen to that but but if not the smiling the waving the acknowledging that is felt like that's my biggest biggest takeaway I learned a lot talking with you But a big big takeaway is the acknowledgement and how huge valuable that is to somebody eighty. Yes I'm because who wants to feel invisible and if anybody out there that that this has maybe maybe awaken something in them. They can always reach out to our website at and I'll be more than happy to talk to him. I'll be more than happy to give the mini guidance. That they they may the. Yeah and that's home. St Home T. N.. For Tennessee Home Street hometeam dot org and a lot of you listening. Don't live Kevin Tennessee but Reach out in your community try to figure out different organizations you can partner up with or work with. Because there's there's a stephen not exactly this stephen but there's hopefully likely a stephen in a community that You know has the wisdom to lead you in the right direction if you want to truly serve and servant in the right way And and there's so many great organizations throughout and what would you say quickly before we go now. I just had this question like I've always heard homeless people Like socks and eggs boiled eggs hard boiled eggs. Is that true it it it me personally. I'm not a big harbaugh. aww Guy but you know it. They do I tell people socks but I come with the caveat on everything I say having lived. Live it yeah okay and I appreciate that I would rather you spend three or four dollars on one good pair of socks preferably will then to spend six dollars ten pair because what you have to understand is the doing laundry does yeah. Those ten pair are not gonNA last. They might wear them socks every day. Twenty four seven for months so they have to a hold up and Foot problems are huge within the homeless community. Obviously So a good pair of socks can eliminate a lot of those problems so invest in one good pair and really change one homeless person versus investing in ten not so good pair and giving ten homeless people just just a moment Yeah I like that. Thank you for that advice because yeah I feel like a lot of times we WANNA just like. Oh I'M GONNA run run to Walmart or target and buy this big impact and pass them out but the wisdom we just gained right now is go get a smart wool. One Nice pair or doesn't have to be I'm just throwing out. A brand doesn't brand but a nice wool sock one pair and give it to one person. Okay all right Steven will thank you for coming by for having me. I enjoyed getting to know you and more about your story and If others want to know more again they can help Home Sweet home is where you can find Stephen in Nashville but If you don't have facebook the F. Facebook instagram facebook. Stephen and his wife got back together. Social media sometimes can be a real Downer but it also can can do really on some things never Life hours pretty. It was pretty beautiful back little excited. Because kick.

"Third thing Mike and you you kind of getting well off the streets into where you are now. I say you're kind of off the streets because you really still out there. That's your daily. We'll be always will be so it's a whole it's you haven't left that life behind you because that's what you now in harmlessness never leaves anybody. Okay if you've ever been homeless I say it all the time. I will always be homeless. It's one of those experiences that you go through just sticks with you for the rest of your life in in my case in a positive way It's truly a blessing to be able to wake up every day and do what I do. I get so much joy out of it But I know some that have come off the streets and it's really hard for them to move on. They do but that baggage is still attached to them from the experience they had for however long they were on the streets some of it could be even labeled like like. PTSD it is. And I have. I have been diagnosed with. PTSD due to what what I experienced and how it still affects me. As I said earlier I still have the nightmares. I still fight the depression But my amazing wife that we'll talk about later she is really she's my rock and she's the one that keeps me going through those moments so she's the one keeping you going. How did Mike help get you where you are? As I said earlier he built that relationship. Now it wasn't smooth And it took an incident that I'm fixing to share with you for I guess things to really Explode between him and I to appoint an in a good way because it opened the floodgates that where I would where I ended up sharing with him? MM everything there was to know about Stephen And that incident took place. It was Christmas Eve twenty thirteen. I'd I'd been on the streets for quite a while and I had made a promise to myself that I was not gonNA spend another holiday season on on the streets because there was just the worst time of year to be homeless and I had come to the end of my rope even although I hadn't Mike and I had some other people. It's still just didn't outweigh the bad. And I was tired of living the way I was living and I was going to do something about it and even though I never done drugs I knew a lot of people that had and I knew a lot of people that were and so I asked a simple question. How many and what kind of pills do I have to buy to end my life and I was told and I proceeded to start buying them as I could? My Gosh and that Christmasy twenty thirteen. I mean I was ready to go I went over to the as I tell now when I speak and and tell my story I went to luxuriance hallmark in on Trinity Lane which anybody ever goes by luxury is not one of those things that pop out but I could get a room for nineteen dollars and ninety five cents plus tax. And I'd say that the money I had the pills in my pocket and it was going to be Hotel California. I was going to check him. But it wasn't gonNA check out and I tell people I was at peace. I was that far gone that that seemed the only only way out for me and I couldn't live with the pain anymore. I couldn't live with the treatment. I couldn't live with the the feeling that I was a total failure and it was my fault the shame and all of that. That went with being homeless so I checked in I went up. I'd written out some letters. I didn't know if the people that I wrote the letters to. I didn't know if they would ever read them but I thought I needed to do that. I took a shower. I don't know why probably because I hadn't had one in a few days and did some other things and but I was. I knew I was going to do and I was completely comfortable with it. And I'll I'll never forget. I sat down at the little round table that was in the room and I just happened under there was little. Am FM clock radio on the nightstand. Next bad it was nine o'clock Christmas it's time The next thing I remember is there was a knock on the door and it kind of startled me and as uh spun look at the door and start to say who visit. I caught the clock again in my vision as I was turning and it was eleven o'clock now this really kind of what the heck the pills were still there. The letter still there. I was still sitting upright in a chair that had no arms and and I'm thinking where is two hours gone will then there's a knock at the door again only this time. There's a voice with it and the voice says sir. Are you checking out or are you staying over. It wasn't eleven o'clock Christmas Eve it. It was eleven o'clock Christmas Day. Wow I didn't no what did just happen but there was. I was experiencing something that I never experienced ever in my life and that was a piece inside of me that let me know that no matter what happened from this point forward I was going to be okay It was going to be okay. I had never known that from a child on I tell people when I speak now I went across the street. I checked. I had just enough money to pay for another night and I had like eight dollars and thirty two cents left. I remember that distinctly eight thousand thirty two cents so I went to the front desk. I paid for another night. And there's this little map co Wendy Mc full blown map co just one of those little mini Matt Coles across the street street so I went over there. They were opened. I spent my eight dollars and thirty two cents on cokes and chips and candy bars. I went back to the hotel room. I turn the TV on PLOP down in the middle of that bed. It was one of the best Christmases I'd ever had in my entire life and is still in the top five and and when might found out getting back to Mike He said for the first time we got DP. What led you to this point? Mike became the first person that I ever told about what happened to me when that was twelve years old. My two oldest brothers passed away. I had two brothers laughed. Nobody knew until I told Mike Nick but my mother and my father myself in the man that did it to me. You told Your Mom and your dad told my mom and my dad. Okay and my dad. Dad looked at me and said well. What did you do to make Kim thank? That's what you wanted and my mother looked at me and said he's a deacon year you I don't believe you nobody else is going to. We don't need the embarrassment we do not talk about this ever again okay. So it was an from that point until I told my nobody knew. I carried that with me all of those years and literally. I knew when I told him and his response. That was the first time I said I can trust this man and let me tell you how big that is. That was December of twenty thirteen. The first week in March chat twenty fourteen with his help. I walked off the streets for good and October. Two thousand fourteen. I borrowed six hundred dollars for Mike to start this ministry and we're going into our sixth year. He never judged adjudged he listened. He never told me what he thought I should do. He always asked what I wanted to do. And he never pride he never questioned. He waited for me to tell him what he wanted wanted to know. And eventually he knew everything there was to know about me all the way back to my childhood without ever having task and that is what it takes one person being willing to invest in one person completely for however long it takes that will change angel life in such a profound way that you you can't begin to imagine the the outcome and I'm living proof literally living proof of that so I feel like like that's wisdom for us to know if you WanNa make an impact on someone in the homeless community Maybe not everybody can invest the one on one right or maybe they don't I mean my ah. I felt like. He's not sure that their stuff on Mike's in the world for sure that can do that but some people might be like. Okay but gosh I still I still WanNa know what's what I can do. Or what's the best thing to say. Maybe if you're not trying to go to that level but who knows it may evolve into that everybody's hearts can be ever changing and some but if people are trying to do a baby step into that You know it is it. I guess I'm just trying to figure out like how when we are. You make a difference when we well I we. We know that a lot of people right now are wanting to get out and volunteer and help and serve in these November December months but so a takeaway as do it twelve months Out of the air. Find a way to gather your family in. Maybe you don't have to commit to every single month but you know if you want if you want your family to be involved in that and you look at your family calendar under you're like Gosh. Let's pick April because we know that's when there's a need and we're gonNA rally together and that'll be our every April thing and then spread the word. Tell your our other friends that are wanting to get involved the like the simple when we drive by and wave a roller window down like is food. Food is is if you don't have money or some people if they're not willing to give money but they're willing to like have snacks in the back of their car like we'll keep snacks sometimes in the back and then roll down in like the kids but I mean even that I don't know I mean sure they don't WanNa turn it away but like okay like I don't want to be offensive and you won't be Bay but I'm GonNa tell you if you want to make a real impact it won't cost you a penny okay. I can't tell you how many times.

"Okay. So you mentioned the top five reasons people are homeless. So let's go through those and the other one you mentioned the fifth one but what are the other four number one overwhelming Loss of job almost forty six percent of homelessness MRS created by loss of job and or a significant reduction in income. And what I mean by that is you have a seventy five thousand dollar year job. You lose that job. The only job you can find at the time is going to pay you. Fifty thousand dollars. Will you still have a seventy five thousand dollars a year mortgage a seventy five thousand dollar year. Car Payment a seventy five thousand dollar year lifestyle lifestyle. It doesn't take long at fifty thousand to not be able to afford the lifestyle I used to have people lose jobs for a lot of reasons. But let's say I'll give you an actual actual story true story. This young man was raised in a family that were roofers. His grandfather started a roofing company. His father continued with that roofing company. He was brought up in that business. That's what he was doing making real good money until he slipped. One day fell off. The roof broke his back. He can no longer be a roofer. That's all he knew. He didn't have any other trait it skills. He'd been born and bred and raised to be a roofer financially. He could no longer longer live. The lifestyle was living which eventually led to a pretty ugly divorce Then child support that he was having difficulty paying He continued to work whatever he could find But but he today lives in a tent. Here in Nashville works full time but he can't afford to pay his child support port and rent an apartment. Gosh so he lives in a tent gets up and goes to work every day so he can can pay that child support. There are more stories like that. Then there are. They're just lazy they just I want to drink or they just wanted to drugs. I had a gentleman that was an attorney. He was in a bad car accident during his recovery period. He got hooked on pain pills after the doctor prescribing. Those pain appeals. He turned to the streets to get. He got caught in a drug sting. He ended up getting disbarred and losing his license to practice law. Divorce was not far behind. And he just didn't you know what to do because like our friend the Roofer this is what he'd wanted to do all of his life. That's all the training he had ever had was to be an attorney and when I I ran into him out on the streets he was broken in every sense of the word and he just didn't see a light at the end of the tunnel and it just took one simple suggestion and I looked at him and I said you do not have to have a law license to be appar legal. You already have the knowledge. Someone will hire you as a researcher if nothing else and you can get back in to what you love doing. He had never thought of that because he was so overwhelmed by the tragedy that had become his life that he couldn't see opportunity even if it was right in front of him and I go back to a statement I made earlier. Nobody gets off the streets on their own right and you mentioned your how you go. Well there was one particular person that you credit to you finally Getting off the streets and I think I just decided for the next thing. I want you to teach us in the third thing. We teach us what we're supposed to say to people because obviously you know we learned from your second ago. We should not say. Why are you homeless? Or how did you get here. Where's your support support group? Or what like those trigger questions anything that can be a trigger question So for you you. Let's share a little bit about the person that came into your life. And how what they just he got to know you. Yes another thing that has to happen before you. You can assist or be an integral part of somebody getting off the streets. You have to build a relationship right you have to build trust which is what you you have done probably with your roofer friend and lawyer friend and yes you are able to finally and then you again knowing where they've come from and then you having the wisdom like you can help them navigate what they couldn't see which a lot of us get wrapped up in one particular circumstance and then we can't see. See the opportunity. We can't say the bigger picture we can't see outside of what's happening. So you can have the biggest drawback to be able to do that is most people. Don't want to invest the time it takes to build that relationship. Mike is a prime example. Mike Dotson the gentleman that I'm speaking of that that is really the reason I'm sitting here today. The first time I met him I stood on the same corner for five years and he came pulling up one day and it was is close to a McDonalds and he came up one day and he said. I don't know if you've eaten breakfast or not but I bought you a sausage biscuit here you go. I said thank you very much. And he said have a great day and he left that was it that was our first encounter but he kept coming back and he kept coming back and he kept coming back and Michael Michael Tell you. I didn't trust people at that point at all. It took Mike over a year before he ever learned my last name but he never pushed he just is kept coming back sometimes he would just pull up and go. I can't stay but I was in the area. I've got an appointment down the road. I just wanted swing. Biology is thinking about you. Hope you're having a good day. I'll be back to spend some time with you later. Okay so how did Mike know that. I mean he had had to had he worked with a homeless before he I mean he just as a gifted spirit of the new kind of the right and not that he's the only person out there that does know this but I I feel like okay. A bunch of us are just kind of like I. I would probably the bonehead that psych so trying to get to know you. How did you get here like wire? Why are you homeless but not a well intentioned but obviously not the right thing and so how do you how did might have the wisdom to know that he just needed to slow? Roll it with you earn your trust I mean is it something Mike had done before now he had never approached a homeless person before. That's okay so It was just really according to the story heat the way he tells it it was just God tap him on the shoulder and saying saying. Hey but and we're fixing to start a new program coming up on too long from now and it's going to be called the one and what my had had come to realize is I can spread a little me around to a whole lot of people but if I give all of me to one I I can make a difference. I can make a real difference and so that relationship building that I mentioned earlier. That's what Mike did and it was as simple as sometimes he would show up with a pizza and he'd get out of his car and we'd sit there on the curb and have lunch together together. Might have you heard of this starfish story. Yes okay. That's sorta sounds like to me. Mike is is a good Christian in man he invited me to church one time and never brought it back up I'd been church hurt in in the past so I wasn't real receptive to that but the amazing thing is as he continued to build that relationship. I'm sitting there one Sunday morning and the next thing I know I'm on my way to his church that invitation that one invitation that he had given me almost a year transpired before that Sunday morning when I woke up and decided I was going to go to church because I never forgot to things. I never forgot that he invited me but more importantly I never forgot that. He didn't push it. He didn't try to ram it down my throat. Because as a homeless person and no offense to Church People Christians I differentiate between the two. They really really are pushy. When it comes to our homeless friends and trying to get them the first mistake they make is as they think? They don't have a relationship with God because you know they seem drunk or they see him this or they see him that I tell people so you do not want to get into a Bible war with a homeless person because ninety five percent of them know no it backwards and forwards they can quote it verbatim. They may get drunk. They may do a lot of things. Everyone I know has a Bible and every one of them I know reads that Bible almost on a daily basis but mike never or pushed it and the problem is if you push one of our friends that distrust they have that has been instilled in them from their experience is going to lock them down and they're gonNA shut you out and the harder you push the less chance you have of getting through through to them you have to let homeless people kind of come to you because you have to let them have time to learn to trust I tell people you can find out everything you want to know about that person if you don't ask because if you ask they're gonNa tell you what they think you want to hear right because that's her experience if you don't ask and you take that time to build that relationship up like Mike did with me they they will tell you everything so wh- obviously started to build this relationship with Mike. What what year on the streets was this because you were there five years do like? How long did it take? Because he's one of the we'll get into how he helped you get get off the streets in new making that that that move But for I have so many questions in my head right now. I don't even know where to start over and then I'm like like Oh gosh I wish this podcast could just Go longer so how we're other people different like. How were you treated like you said you were on the same corner every day and he was obviously pretty awesome to you? How did you feel like with other people and not that? Everybody's awesome you by any means but I'm like you know when people would drive by like how does it feel when people drive by and they just don't even look at you. I mean sometimes they just assume okay. They're asking for money. I don't have any money so I'm just GONNA keep both my hands on the wheel and look straight ahead and not even acknowledge them. Because I don't have any money I don't want to be awkward. What would what would make your day better if people even if they didn't have any money or anything to give her whatever you're asking for whatever there's a smile away like how 'cause obviously not everybody's going to be like he was you that one more whatever like you were his one which I'm very curious about this new program to all that's rattling in my head right now but like what? Just so that we know when we're in our cars because I'm guilty of that totally And then I even I talk crap to myself after I do it. I'm like God that just so. Oh that's a human. That's why are you being Weirdo. Like don't be a Weirdo. You would waving smiled as somebody else like. Why is this awkward so like what? What kind of interactions did you have? And what would advice be to those of us that are just in our cars driving by that just should probably be friendly. Well I'll give you the the three three ways that society interacts with homeless people Number one is they're invisible they just don't exist. They drive by. They don't obtaining knowledge if you wave at them they're not going to wave back. I think part of that is if they don't see our friends human beings then they're they're okay with not doing disconnected. Yeah they're okay with not doing anything.

"The best that humanity has offer but it took an event during that period on the streets to get me to that point and end. I tell people when they ask me about the homeless condition and we hear it all the time they just WanNa be there. They're just lazy or or they're just they just WANNA drink or they just WANNA do drugs. What I found out was no? That's not the case. It wasn't for me. I'm sixty three three years of age. I don't drink don't do drugs. Never have in my entire life but I still ended up on the streets but what I I went through while I was there really started to to tear me down. And that's what people don't understand and I've been off the streets since two thousand fourteen now and my wife will tell you. I still have nightmares. I still have bouts of depression that go back back to that period. Okay so coming up in the second thing I want to hear about your life those five years and what that was like and how we can better try yeah to understand the people that were seeing our friends on the streets. Were passing every day. Maybe if they're on a corner or some that maybe we don't even know out there some that that are looking for shelters 'cause yeah I think there is a some of us are just raised I don't have this outlook but but I know some people listening may have the like you said like well. They should go get a job and you know they probably are drugs. I'm not going to give the money. They're just going to go buy the alcohol with it and you know April. Who is how I was introduced? You are for an April she. I don't know if she got this from you or she just said that. It's one of our meetings. Thanks for the home straight home for the miracle fourth event. She said something. Like I mean y'all if I was homeless I would be drinking too so yeah if they need to go get a drink. I'm going to get him and I was thinking. Gosh you know when my my kids my kids I came from Haiti. I I was so stressed out. I think think I probably had a drink every night. Like glass wine and I'm like is like nothing compared to being on the streets so I would like for you to give us an inside. Look of what your time. I'm was like and what it's like for other so we can really understand and then But before we hop into that. Second thing You you you mentioned it was a roller coaster. You feel like it started back when you were twelve. And then there was ups and downs. You had success. You had failures I. I'm I'm always curious. Like what is that moment. My Dad had some health issues about a year and a half ago and when he was released from the hospital he just was not right. cognitively Medically just all kinds of things and he had throat cancer. Surgery went terribly wrong but my sister and I were there and we have a half brother and half sister and we were all there and family and friends but I am my friend. Mary and I've talked about this a couple of times just with with people that we know like if if if they didn't have us if certain people didn't have their daughters at their kids or their moms their neighbor they're like that had the ability to take you care for you. I don't know like I think my dad could've ended up homeless in not really sort of a delirious like and then he wouldn't have been on the proper meds and then he would be this person that yeah. I pass people on the street sometime. We're I've looked at them now and I'm like Oh my gosh. That could have been my dad bad and they seem totally just not with it and with which is not their fault and But sometimes we can. Just knock that off or just chock it up to maybe drugs and that was it may not be the case. That certainly would not have been if if it wasn't for my dad having having a support group if people don't have a support group that's what happened. So what. Where was your support group? And why. I'm not saying that everybody has to have one. But that's what I want to understand because I come from a family that everybody's there so then sometimes trying to understand and paint a picture for everybody not everybody. Freddie has that no. Excuse me you said something very important when you when you say support group. Here's a couple of things you you touched on a couple of real good points First and foremost When I give the top five causes of homelessness people are always shocked to find out that the the last in that list of five is drug or alcohol abuse that only counts for less than seven percent percent of the Homeless Causes Homelessness Causes and people seem kind of shocked and they always come back with will but I see so many that are drinking and this that and the other and I go yes that is a result of the homelessness? Okay that's for April was referring to not not the call okay of the homeless But so that's so a very important point that I try to stress the people Unless you've lived it unless you know what it's like being out there you might not be able to wrap your head around that but they're trying to kill the pain they're trying to escape from their reality because their reality is horrible at best I so yes. There is a lot of drinking not as much drug use as most people think simply because they can't afford it alcohol's a lot lot cheaper but they're trying to escape from their daily existence and that's what it is and it's an existence it's not living. Its existing the your other point about a support group. No one can get off the streets by themselves. I didn't someone that stepped in and was bound and determined that he was going to help me get my life back so people people think that the homeless condition is self induced condition in other words. You're did something to end up out on the streets so so you just need to fix that. I was homeless for almost five years. I had a mother and four brothers. Living right here Nashville. They couldn't tell you whether I was dead or alive because they didn't care now. Part of that was my fault because of the life I lead but they were also embarrassed about where I've ended up and my two oldest brothers and my mother passed away while I was on the streets and I was not allowed to attend the funerals. tell people all the time when I'm training new volunteers and people who want to get into outreach Stay away from the family question question right up front because a lot of times a lot of times. That's why they are where they are just like like in my case if we look back to the home I was raised in and what I went through that left scars. Those scars still exist. I'm just now better equipped to handle them. Then I was so I tell people stay away light because that's usually one of the first two or three questions that people ask the number one question. They always ask as well. How did you become homeless? Stay away from that question right up front because what you've done is you've just ripped the scab right off the wound and all of that that comes flooding back in their minds and they have to re live every step along the way that ended up with them on the streets. Yeah so I which I wanNA save a little bit of that conversation to transfer into the next thing And then also I want you to share in the next thing. The other four reasons people are homeless number five being alcohol or drugs. But that's so there's four other things and you you know. I have a guess of one of the top two are going to be and and just from listening to you talk and how. Gosh I'm I'm sitting here just so thankful for the bringing I had You know it wasn't perfect. My parents were divorced But they're good parents and and you know I didn't have certain things that you had to go through or that a lot of other people like you just never ever know what else what is going going on in somebody's life and what what led them there. So thank you for sharing us with us a little bit of your story. And what got so you to this point But there was that five year stint that you had on the streets so in the next thing. We'll we'll dive into your life there. Aaron your friends. And maybe what they're thinking feeling and why they're there.

"Beautiful little mouth because Thursday. Everybody I gotTa Tell You I. I am super excited for you all to hear this chat that I have today with Stephen Young. He's the founder of home sweet home which is an organization in Nashville that serves the homeless. And what is a special about Stephen is. He was homeless himself for five years and he does all four things with me. He came over to my house the day after Thanksgiving and we talked hawked and this is a long one but I encourage you to listen to all four things even if you have to break it up or listen to it on the faster speed so that you can get through it if you don't have the time or maybe take a couple of days to listen to it. I mean it's not like super long. Mary and I did a gift guide. That was about this long. which by the way that gift guide is still up? If you'll have not listen to it. That was last Thursday's episode and you can go to radio DOT COM to access links to any everything we talked about whether it was a gift that gives back or just a bunch of our favorite products which a lot of them can be found on Amazon. And we provided you all those links so anyway back to this episode. It's long but we talk his life life before he became homeless. What it was like living on the streets for five years how he overcame at how he is now? A new husband got married. Last last year has a roof over. His head is running this great organization serving others and then we ought to get into the top five reasons that people are homeless. I think a lot of times. We have a stereo. Are you type of well. This is probably why that person's homeless and we just roll with that when really it's just not the case and I gotTa Tell You Sitting Down with him I just again was reminded how blessed I am to have the parents that I had growing up. Even the current support group that I have in my life and family because a lot of times it boils down to that. When we hit hard times we hit lows if we have a support group to fall on? Then you're not. We're not as affected even though it it. It can be a big low but some people have nobody to turn to a a lot of times. They end up on the streets so I found it to be interesting when he went over the five reasons why people are homeless then also how we. He can be responding to people on the streets because I kind of confessed to how I handle it. Sometimes and he just shares little things that mean the world to people that are standing on the corner when you're driving by so it's a really inspiring. Listen I hope you are encouraged by it and that maybe you'll think about how you can serve others in your community year round not not just this time of year the season of serving and giving but year round so hope you enjoy it and before we get into our little chat. I guess I'll just go and say since since it's such a long interview I'm not GonNa do a little shoutout at the end. Normally do an email shoutout. But I'm just going to let this interview role and we'll pick up with the most shutouts next week but Just no I guess. Today's Thursday so that cut off for our four things customized coats for things totes. That are customizable. If you WANNA get one specifically for like a a girl in your life your sister your mom your best friend and you're still trying to figure her favorite four things. We made these little cheat sheets. You know they give you examples of things that may even trigger bigger. you see hot yoga written on the cheat that we made be like. Oh well my mom doesn't love hot yoga but she loves kickboxing so you might put that on there or something cuter she loves taking long walks. You See Margherita on there. You might be like Oh. She doesn't like Margarita but she loves red wine. So you put our Sangria or something like that. Does that make sense. So these a little cheat sheets we made hey to help you come up with the four things because we get it can be really hard but anyway long story short. The cutoff is basically now and we don't want to threaten. We're there's zero pressure to order. I we just feel like it's also our duty to remind those of you. That might want it that the cutoff is happening and you will miss the Christmas deadline and you will not get it in time. And that's just going to be a real bummer. We hate that for people because we get the emails in the messages and their people are bummed and we just don't want anybody to be bummed so go to my instagram radio. Amy Look for the picture of me and Pink Sweatshirt and my new tot- which says Texas Dry Shampoo Macho Latinos and pimp enjoy then swipe when you swipe that you'll see the cheat sheets that we made where we also have action cheat sheets for an action tot- like if you want one that says like be bold be kind choose joy give back go running. How Fun SIP? The wine seek adventure. Action Coats are really really cute instead of just putting like favorite four things like favorite movie.

"And I think we should say probably that these four episodes of the first one non Johnny plays, a comedian who is kind of struggling and wants to be famous a very kind of a classic twilight. Yes. Very to me the setup is the most twilight zone. Yeah. And the second one Adam Scott plays a guy who's on a plane in kind of a spin on Zee William Shatner sees a monster on the wing of the plane episode, which is kind of a classic. But in that one it's a different kind of thing. It has some of the same dynamics. But the ending is really different and didn't work for me. Steven, what did you think about these? Well, I mean, I I will back up everything that these England is said the episode's tend to be too long. It is wildly uneven. Just like the original. I did find that from episode episode because you have completely different stories to completely different cast. You have these tonal shifts that can be really really wild. Especially from episode episode. I enjoyed the Camille non Johnny episode in part because so much of it is Camille Johnny on stage. So the fact that it dragged for fifty five minutes when it probably should have been thirty five didn't bother me as much. I thought the Adam Scott one was fine until that kind of dopey ending. Then you have the third episode replay with Sonali 'then, and it is a a more wrenching kind of hard sit. She's the mother of a son who is going to college and she's carrying around this old camcorder and she realizes through twilight zone. Ian nations that she can rewind time using the camcorder. And basically, the camera becomes a metaphor for for the eternal vigilance required of African Americans when dealing with the police, it is a very powerful episode. It is a very difficult episode to watch. But it is weird too. Have the experience of watching the twilight zone and have that burgling of dread and rage offset against the inherent corny -ness of the twilight zone where you have Jordan Peele kind of turn his head in twilight zone. And so that episode for me, you felt the corny nece butting up against intensity and sincerity and powerful storytelling. And then the fourth episode a traveler that's the one with Stephen Younan great career. It's an x files episodes executive. It's written expels writers. And I also think that is the one that is the most to me about that Steven young performance. I think there's there's not that much going in on in that one. That is interesting from story perspective for me. But I love that performance. He's such an interesting sued. It's interesting to watch this and also his performance in burning. He's got a real handle on these kind of uncomfortably confident. Sort of Weasley, but charming, he's got a real style. I love his performance in it. But I got to the end of it. And I was sorta like I mean, okay. I mean, the Somali thing when I do want to comment I love her. She's such a good actress. She's I go back with her to love and basketball and some other things, and she doesn't get necessarily as many great roles as she should. So I was really happy to see her in this. And I do think there's a poignancy to. I mean, the twilight zone has always been trying to use these hooks to tell a real story about morality, and I think it makes some sense that that morality has evolved a little bit because it's no longer. Just be careful what you wish for and stuff like that. I wrote about this. When I when I reviewed it for NPR, but surly had a real kind of don't, you know, just embrace your community. Don't let the community turn on each other. And this episode I like because it partly has an understanding that the community has already turned on certain people. There's not the same reverence. I don't think for the small town because a lot of times he would do the sort of the nuclear attack fear rips, the bandages off of all the wounds, and the small town turns on each other this I think relies more than understanding that it already is a very dangerous situation for a lot of people, and how they might respond one thing that is that I like about this series is that only one of the four that we've seen has point of view character..

It's nice every other show. Thank you for having me. You grew up in Detroit Michigan. Yes. What was Detroit Michigan like when you're going up? I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit. Michigan. I got to visit Detroit every week because my folks owned a beauty supply on Woodward downtown right across the street from the Sears building, which eventually got demolished Detroit was like at that time the place. You don't go to rather the place that, you know, your immigrant parents work. And that's kind of how I saw it while I lived in the bustling dry metropolis or the suburban metropolis is known as Troy. It was quiet grassy lot of shopping and just running around outside. That's mostly what it was kind of running around outside. I mean like skateboarding and a call this soccer. I wish I wish I was that cool. Actually, it was a lot cooler. Yes. Yeah. I was pretty not growth hockey street hockey, football soccer baseball. It was just pre internet life, which I can barely. Remember it is. I mean, like, we're a similar age, and it is odd to think that there is a demarcation in your life before. And after you could just go on the computer and just stay there for five hours. Oh, yeah. Or like when all book reports looked exactly the same because it was all the Encarta ninety five. This was just Britannica or Encarta. And now it's like people's opinions. Well, I think they steal from more specific sources, of course, of course. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And now, we know that those collections of information worse slightly tainted the will. There was a time. I think when the promise of the computer was, but you could add a color photograph to your report. That would launch you onto the honor roll. Yeah. Or like, you get one of those like dissolving fades on your video project that you to do. It's mostly the rich kids that got to do those little things because their parents have those texts, but yeah, no different times. Did you grow up in? I mean, you went to church. Do you go to Korean-American church? Yes. They did. So did you grow up in a Korean American community? Or did you like how much of your life was defined by your parents, Korean Ness, and how much of your life was miscellaneous suburban, mid westerner. I let a very dualistic life trace it back nowadays and think about immigration, and I had some stories from the past. Whereas like, oh, I I remember getting dragged in kicking and screaming to class every single day when I was in kindergarten. And then they just sat me down with Plato. I remember my dad telling me, my first were English words were what does don't cry mean? And you know, they've just become like funny myths, or like ideas or stories that you tell yourself to to give yourself a backstory, but then like, you really process that in your adult age, and you're like maybe that was messed up like maybe that was really traumatic, and I didn't know how to deal, but I do remember that. I think it connects is that made me so scared that I desire to be part of what was popular and normal, which was, you know, white suburban culture, and and then I had this other portion which was church friends. And that was where it felt like family felt comfortable. I felt like myself were you aware of the difference between I presume that you had appears in school who were, you know, going to young life or whatever Chris. Youth groups and stuff. Are you were you aware of the difference between your world of Christian youth culture in their world of Christian youth colleague, Walter, you know, I don't know if I was that aware until we went to a massive young life conference, and it was one of those huge church retreats where like there's like, I don't know a hundred youth groups from one hundred different churches, and we were the only Korean one that went and I remember getting all couple. Kid racists, things like, you know, seeing that the bus was had Korean letters on it. So, you know, people do the whole like ching Chong thing or whatever. But you know, it wasn't too bad because it was still Christian. They're trying to keep the cool. But the funniest part of that was like we did distinctly feel out of place, and then it all culminated to winning the broomball championship. And we won that. Like we want it week. Went lost our first game cut Trump down to loser tier? And then worked our way back up to a final penalty hit penalty shot or this one of my friends at church, Danny Kim, he hit this amazing shot that like he he chipped it. So it went over the goalkeeper and right over his shoulder into the goal. And we went ballistic, and I think they respected us after that. I feel like. Career in suburban Detroit's Korean American populations version of the you know was that nineteen Eighty-four USA versus the USSR hockey game. Yes. That's exactly right. It was peak peak life. I think. You're listening to bullseye. Jesse? Thorn, my guest is the actor Stephen young you live here in Los Angeles. And you also have a brother who lives here in Los Angeles has a restaurant not not that far from here. What is it like for you to see the particular kind of Korean American experience that exists here in Los Angeles where there are places where there are many fully independent worlds of upper-middle-class Korean and Korean American people? Both like Koreans living in America who might not identify themselves even as American and immigrants who have upper-class lives that are majority Korean like they're living in Korean-American world. What's that like for you to see as as an adult is a guy who came here when you were in your mid late twenties. Well, I mean, like sometimes you'll meet kids from Hawaii were so Cal kids or even the bay, and they're just unlocked, you know, or they're normal. They don't have this image of Korean American or Asian American that they're kind of acquiescing to you know, I'm I'm from Michigan. And while I didn't experience intense, overt racism. I experienced more like I'm projecting onto you the space that you're allowed to inhabit. And it's this big, and I won't objectively tell it to you. But you'll feel it in fear, and you'll feel it in the way that we treat you in like a very small subtle way. So you all of a sudden find yourself, you know, saying like, oh like I like violin. And you're like, I don't really like violin. But I'm pretty much. I'm thinking I'm supposed to like violin or you go I can't be on the football team. But I can be on the tennis team. And you're like, oh, yeah. I like tennis and you make all these cognitively dissident decisions for yourself. And you tell yourself when you convince yourself that like these are decisions that are coming from you. And they're truthful honest decisions that you yourself had complete agency over and then you look back, and you go, oh, most of this was just to like fit the mold or keep safe or make myself predictable to these people. So that I don't get harmed wanted that I feel accepted, and then, you know, if you're lucky enough to break through that type of mental prison youth center for yourself, then you have to do the work to rebuild like your actual being one of the things is you're describing like coming to terms with the idea of like, for example, do I actually want to play on the tennis team? Yeah. But like in rejecting it. You're also making a choice that you have to deal with the consequences. Yes. Whereas I might be in a position to just not be. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, that's what I would watch a lot of my, you know, I said this before I did a story at riot LA, I won't speak for other people. But I'll speak most. I mean, I can only speak for myself. But for me I wanted to assimilate very badly. To the point where I even wanted something as dumb and benign storage. You know, like I distinctly remember being like I want storage. I didn't know like there's nothing special about storage. But I was like I want that because my friend. Tony Hartman has that like we you know, we sat by his house. Let's play Nintendo. And he's like, oh, I can't play Nintendo. My mom's citizen storage and storage. What the hell is storage? How do I get that for myself? Tap into this symbol of late capitalism. Get access. So that I can put it away in a non where I can't access it a very fast like it's just so dumb. But I wanted it. I wanted that. I wanted a dog. I wanted a photo on the mantle going to Kabul, San Lucas with my family, I want, you know, like, I remember teaching kids soccer in Chicago. When I was just starting out. And you'd see these like two year old three year old kids living very nouveau riche lives being like, I just came back from turksancacoes. And you're like damn I didn't even know that was a place, and I'm twenty five, you know, like, I never even set foot in that type of place before. And it's just you know. It's it's this overall. It's just finding a comfort with yourself. And that was part of my growth that was part of. I think my Asian American upbringing that when juxtaposed to Korean kids at a meeting LA who are just like. Yeah, I'm Ted Kim. So what? And I'm like your Ted Kim. Like it took me a while to not be Korean kid number five. And now, I'm Steven, you know, and then even then they want a nickname you. I remember growing up to like having a very strong aversion to people trying to nickname me like a couldn't stand it like if they've tried to nickname me, I lose my mind, and I often wondered where that came from. And in retrospect, it was just like I wanted to feel like I had control over something. My name would be one of them. You know? But yeah, smaller it's crazy stuff. Like that. It's bulls eye. I'm Jesse thorn. I'm here in the studio with Stephen. Then he starts in the new movie burning would just playing now. In select theaters. It seems like the kind of sensitivity that assimilation requires to the expectations of everyone around you in the facade of it. You have to maintain to engage those in the right way is you know, it's like a major acting job. Yeah. I was awesome at it early. And then, you know, then you come of age in you unpack so many other things like if I went through this as a straight male. What's it like to be gay? Was it like to be a woman like what's it like to be black? And you're just then, you know, you go through all this stuff, and but just talking from my point of view. Yeah. It's hard hard work to constantly put on a show every waking minute that you're outside in burning. You play Korean that is to say a native born Korean. And I think this is the first. Time. You've played a native born Korean onscreen is untrue. Yes. Well, technically, you could argue that K in oak was natively born there, but he is not he's fully American. But yeah, this is the first time I've played a currently native Korean were you afraid to do that. I was afraid to do it for a split second before I met director Lee where I just kind of process, and I told myself like, hey, there's a version of this where you say no to him were you say, I don't think I can accomplish what you inquire what you require me to do. But then after I met him, and he gave me the blessing to be like, I think you're the person to play this part. I didn't think about it. I just was like all right now I've worked to do.

"Oh, good. And at this point, Stephen young, a thirty five year old insurance broker was on trial. So the murder has already happened. He's on trial for the death of Harry Nicolo fuller who had been found dead on the floor of their home a year. Earlier Nicola had been shot three times in Harry was shot in the back at close range. So there's this brutal murder that this guy. Steven young is on trial for the jury hears the case. And then they go to the hotel where they're staying and as. The other slept four of the jurors group together around a homemade ouija board that they had made from a piece of paper and a hotel room wine glass. This is literally us on torture and like talk to lately it is. I was like. Oh, getting tips. A little more fucked up because they decided to try and contact the murder the souls of the murdered victims. Oh that had been shot before. Gotcha. So wonder named Ray took charge of addressing the spirit and dented itself as Harry fuller, the men who had been shot right asked who killed you. And the glass built out Stephen young done it specific he said Facebook how well the guys on trial Stephen O M, it's ninety four. Well, so I guess it's going to work. So that, but I mean, Steve Young's literally the one that they're on the jury for. Yeah. Right. So they said the glass said Stephen young done it. And then Ray said how and the glass build shot. So the jersey what do we do what we do and the glass apparently spilled out vote guilty tomorrow. So by the end of the say on some of the jurors were crying if you were like shit. We like really went too far this is inappropriate. And then what they ended up doing was. Going to their rooms and agreeing not to tell anybody else, including the other jurors what they had done, but a few weeks later, a headline emerged in international papers across the world that read murder juries ouija board verdict and people were fucking furious. Sounds like implanted her refine just chose to tell everyone that wait. What do you mean? Like, it's I would imagine like someone using ouija board like just spelt that out just hoping other people be freaked out. Yeah. I mean, I think people were pissed like why are they using a we this isn't a joke. Let's fair. But my first one is like, oh, it's it's a trap. I don't know. I mean, the guy was guilty. Any like, I don't think there was really a question. Whether he had. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I don't know. I don't know people were just pissed because it's like this was one of the most high profile trials like. And then these jurors like make it kinda tabloid headline. I don't know. So the case ended up being one of the most high profile examples of juror misbehavior in the world would really interesting about like juror misbehavior, which apparently is like very common like one time. They found out during a high profile trial half the jurors were playing Sadako like they'd all shared like their Sedova who book, and we're all like doing Sadako while goes talking about like what he's murder something like people, I don't know apparently shit goes down with these Dury's. And actually this jury that used the ouija board was already the second jury because the first set had been replaced because they had been played a tape of the emergency call that Nicola fuller had made between being shot like she got shot. And then she called nine one one. And they played that tape, and it's like deeply gruesome upsetting. And I guess they the jury only lasted one day before one of them was like I can't do this anymore. So they already had to like, basically retrial the whole thing. So the judge asked for an entire new jury after that and the problem with juror misbehavior, apparently it's really harmful and costly especially with like a high profile traumatic case like this one because you have to do a whole retrial. So that puts everyone, including the judge the staff the accused witnesses jurors like the families through like they've just have to start the entire process over again..

"Guess I don't wanna. I don't wanna spoil, but within the scene in which she sort of explains the modern art pieces. He's other form, which is the end her explanation of it is funny enough, right? But what they actually acted out and actually like stage, it comes across as really disturbing. Oh, this scene is dragging on a little bit longer than it is comfortable. Right. It makes you question like why she's in the movie to begin with. Right. She's she does the thing that the girlfriend as always does, which is like she's there to ground the protagonist in this case look Stanfield, but she's not really doing anything else in this movie. I talked to him about this by the way I, I was just like, what do you think about that? And how do you feel about that? The way that she, I don't know if the word is protected boots Riley for making the choice that he did with her character was by saying, my character is the most like boots boots made me in his image, the artist and activist the radical artists. Yeah, I just wanted. I guess I just wanted more. I just liked Tessa Thompson. I'd like to see more. I felt like they didn't necessarily flesh out. Her status as the conscience of the movie. The way I think she was intended at one person that we didn't talk about who was very charming to me. And I saw this movie twice and I was charmed by him. The second time was Germain. Fowler he plays liq- Stanfield best friend in the movie Salvador, and I thought he was just funny and his comedy was timed perfectly. He is a comedian in real life and he's just somebody that I'm going to be looking out for in the future because this was his first feature film, and I hope he's going to be another's are appreciated. He gave a little bit of a jolt to the to the scenes he was in, and there are points in this movie that fall a little flat. And I think having him come in and give a little bit of a pop to scenes definitely helped. We haven't talked about Steven young. I, I wasn't that impressed with him actually, and I love him. I know you do. I know he's, he's your booth, and you had a lot always sort of like the animating force for he sort of voices. A lot of the anti capitalist critiques like right directly, but they don't do much with them like, and there's also this. Implication that he in kind of a romantic rival Thompson and he and the key Stanfield is supposed to be like fighting for affections, but that doesn't really go anywhere. Yeah, I don't. I mean, that was weird. I would have cut that out actually. Absolutely. If I could be at it this film, that's one part. I would get rid of a feel like a homeless commentary moving will be like, if I If could. I could. I feel like a lot of people would reedit this film and a lot of different ways. Do they feel like a lot of the choices he made were deliberate and he really wanted to throw us off and he really wanted to challenge our expectations is if you're and I think that he did that, he made us uncomfortable and he made us feel like, oh, this is weird, and maybe some people will call it a mess. Gene Denby. Like I said, I think it was a challenge and I think he did that on purpose. It wasn't come out of this movie with like no opinion, right. Movie like set up for you to be like, oh, well. I came out of theater, not tweeted like what the hell was that engineered to keep you off balance. And if you if you know that going in, I think you'll you'll probably come out of it better. Nice. Well, that brings us to the end of our show. We want to know what you think of sorry to bother. You guessing that there.
