In recent years, gender parity in Hollywood has become a prominent issue, with strong advocates rightfully speaking out about the woeful underrepresentation of women directors in contemporary cinema.  However, our calls for inclusion today should also consider the women excluded from history.  Lost and Found — the first installment of Crash the Canon, a series celebrating women directors — takes as a premise that film canons are and should be ever-expanding, becoming radically inclusive of those who have, for so long, been left out.

Patrick Kinney, Communications Director at Film Streams, stops by the studios at KIOS-FM to chat with Mike Hogan about this issue and the on-going course and offerings coming up.  More information about times and tickets can be found at https://filmstreams.org/series/crash-the-canon-lost-and-found

After airing a "sneak peak" excerpt of the long chat Mike Hogan, host on KIOS-FM, was lucky enough to have with Paul Giamatti, below is the unabridged interview.  So generous with his time and views, Mr. Giamatti shares about his career, acting, and some of his favorite moments in the industry.

Film Streams proudly announces Great Directors: Yasujiro Ozu (Apr 21 - Jun 27), a twelve-film retrospective celebrating an artist known for quiet films of great emotional power. 

In a career that stretched from the silent era to the dizzying time of progress that visited Japan after World War II, Yasujiro Ozu crafted no fewer than ten films now considered masterpieces.  He is perhaps best known for sympathetic portraits of youngsters yearning for independence and elders cast aside by impatient modernizers — often with stars Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara.

Communications Director of Film Streams, Patrick Kinney, makes an early morning stop by the KIOS-FM studios for a special edition of "Live & Local" with Mike Hogan.
