Talking Rich Hill with Tracy Droz Tragos

Thu, 07/31/2014 - 7:00pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette Street, NYC

We’ve teamed up with the new and fabulous Talkhouse Film to celebrate the upcoming theatrical release of the 2014 Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Rich Hill.

Martha Shane, co-director of the highly acclaimed After Tiller, will sit down with Rich Hill co-director Tracy Droz Tragos to discuss her unique journey in making the “nearly flawfless” film about growing up on the edge of poverty in rural America. Their conversation will touch on such subjects as verite filmmaking in the 21st century, the challenges of portraying a community close to home, and balancing the personal with the professional.

Talkhouse Film
Filmmakers talk about their own work all the time, but they rarely get to talk about other people’s work. That’s what the Talkhouse is all about: smart, distinguished people from the world of film and TV, of all genres and generations, writing about the latest releases. And there’s a twist: the person who’s being written about is encouraged to respond to the piece. The idea is to promote dialogue between creators who may never have interacted otherwise. Talkhouse readers can have a ringside seat to this unique exchange, or they can join the conversation too.
