On this episode, we bring you two segments recorded at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival! First up, Marvin chats with Anderson Le, the artistic director of the Hawaii International Film Festival, about the films that they've seen while at the festival, including thoughts on the festival's Asian offerings like Burning, Shadow, and The Crossing. Next up, Marvin chats with documentary directors Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi about their film Free Solo, featuring rock climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to be the first person to climb El Capitan, a 3,000 foot rock formation, without a rope. They chat about their experience in both making the film and as Asian American film directors.
