Dolce Vita Confidential: Fellini, Loren, Pucci, Paparazzi, and the Swinging High Life of 1950s Rome by Shawn Levy, talking with Jenn Chavez on KBOO's The Film Show
Short film directors from the Northwest Filmmakers' Festival join us in the studio, along with Dolce Vita Confidential author Shawn Levy


Film writer Shawn Levy sits down with Jenn Chavez to tell behind-the-scenes stories of the classic Italian film studios, as collected in his newest book Dolce Vita Confidential: Fellini, Loren, Pucci, Paparazzi, and the Swinging High Life of 1950s Rome.

Then, S.W. Conser previews the 43rd Northwest Filmmakers' Festival with three notable directors of short films: Matt McCormick, Hannah Piper Burns, and Josh Lunden.  Matt's new film Secret Part I & II adds to his extensive body of experimental work.  Hannah's film Outer Darkness uses popular television footage to explore and reframe issues of gender and power.  And Josh Lunden's Modern Dark finds wonder in the story of an inner-city youth fascinated by the night sky.
