Documentary filmmaker Jesse Moss (“The Overnighters”, “Boys State”) returns to Filmwax to discuss his new film, “Mayor Pete”. Jesse’s film brings viewers inside Pete’s campaign to be the youngest U.S. President, providing an unprecedented intimacy with the candidate, his husband Chasten, and their ambitious team. From the earliest days of the campaign, to his unlikely, triumphant victory in Iowa and beyond. This film reveals what really goes on inside a campaign for the highest office in the land – and the myriad ways it changes the lives of those at its center. Recently appointed to U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Buttigieg serves as the first openly LGBTQ Cabinet member in U.S. history. “Mayor Pete” is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video!
Kelcey Edwards makes her first appearance on the podcast with her documentary “The Art of Making It” which is about to enjoy its NYC premiere at DOC NYC. The first screening is sold out but there’s a second one on November 18th. “The Art of Making It” follows a diverse cast of young artists at pivotal moments in their careers to explore whether the art world ecosystem meant to nurture them is actually failing them. Are we at risk of losing the creative voices of a new generation as universities, galleries and museums face cataclysmic changes? Or, are we on recreating outdated modes of experiencing art to make it accessible to all?
