#607: Conversation with Steve James
« on: October 14, 2016, 03:49:41 PM »


Back in June, IDA and Chicago's Kartemquin Films invited Adam to host a career-spanning conversation with documentary filmmaker Steve James ("Hoop Dreams," "The Interrupters"). This excerpt from that talk covers James' early life growing up in Hampton, VA, and his films STEVIE (2002) and AT THE DEATH HOUSE DOOR (2008), plus the James-produced PBS series about immigration THE NEW AMERICANS (2004).

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
