We are back for a new season, and this time with a series of guest hosts – a new one each episode – to accompany Bart and Chris on their journey through documentary cinema. Our guest for this episode is filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi, whose Facing the Dragon I mentioned on our April 17 bonus episode. We review Danish director Mads Brügger’s Cold Case Hammarskjöld, a wild romp of an investigative movie, just recently released in theaters, and interview director Stephen Maing about last year’s Crime + Punishment. Curious about the connection? Listen on … Finally, at the end, in “Doc Talk,” since Sedika has just taken up a teaching position at Savannah College of Art and Design, we discuss her planned strategies to train the next generation of documentarians. And all that in just over 50 minutes.
