RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesJohn-Luke Montias, Off Jackson Avenue
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 7/24/09
A true American independent, filmmaker John-Luke Montias scored with his 1999 debut, the low-budget, award-winning Bobby G Can't Swim. The actor-turned-filmmaker is back with another mix of grit, mayhem, comedy and action in Off Jackson Avenue, which was filmed entirely on location in Queens, NY. Montias discusses star casting, the effects of the recession on independent filmmaking and why it's sometimes better when trying to get a film made to just do it (26 minutes).
