True/False 2018

Listen to the episode

In the college town of Columbia, Missouri, the True/False Film Fest has grown to become one of the world’s premiere showcases of cutting-edge nonfiction filmmaking. Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold returned to moderate “Toasted,” the festival’s late-night wrap-up event in front of a live, very lively audience, abridged for clarity here as a Film Comment podcast. Rapold was joined by a superlative crew of critics, programmers, and filmmaking talent including Mara Gourd Mercado, general director of Montreal docfest RIDM; Tayler Montague, freelance critic and programmer; Chris Boeckmann and Abby Sun, programmers at True/False; Rok Bicek, director of The Family; and Ashley Clark, senior film programmer at BAMcinématek. The freewheeling discussion kicks off with Bicek discussing The Family before it moves on to Zhang Mengqi’s Self-Portrait: Birth in 47 KM, Reece Auguiste’s Twilight City and the Black Audio Film Collective retrospective, Khalik Allah’s Black Mother, Leilah Weinraub’s SHAKEDOWN, and many more documentaries.
