Pre-Season AIFF: "The Last Season" And "Point And Shoot"
The main events for the Ashland Independent Film Festival are still months away (next April).
But there are always good films to be seen, and AIFF puts on Varsity World Film Week starting tonight (October 3rd through 9th).
One of the films is Sara Dosa's The Last Season,which focuses on the valuable Matsutake mushroom harvest in Oregon.
And there's a twist: the central characters in the documentary have roots of their own reaching back to wars in Southeast Asia.
Sara Dosa joins us, along with Marshall Curry, the director of Point and Shoot, the story of a man who battled obsessive compulsive disorder by taking a motorcycle trip halfway around the world.
The film's subject, Matt VanDyke, will also visit.
