RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesFrancis Ford Coppola, Tetro
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 6/19/09
Stephen Schaefer holds a telephone interview with cinematic royalty Francis Ford Coppola, the great maven of the medium whose 2009 film, Tetro, is his second in two years and the first he has written since his 1974 masterpiece The Conversation. He discusses the misguided commercial impositions and preconceptions of the "cinema gulag," the visceral image that gave rise to his new film and the new defining rules of his "second career" in filmmaking, characterized by his perennial desire to, as he conceives it, "learn how to make movies" (23 minutes).
