• 5 The Alexandre O. Philippe Show

Alexandre O. Philippe, a Denver film maker who is a friend of mine, has an 11-minute short in this year’s Denver Film Festival. It’s titled Left and it portrays, without a single word of dialogue, a deep sense of loss of a loved one.  At tonight’s screening, I happened to sit down next to two stars of Alexandre’s last feature-length film, Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water, and they agreed to a quick interview.  Earthlings is a documentary of an institute devoted to preserving the Klingon language created for Star Trek.  The podcast concludes with excerpts from Alexandre’s introductory comments for Left.  After the movie, I recorded an interview with Marilyn Auer, who stars in Left, but my unfamiliarity with my new Edirol R-09 recorder led to the painful discovery that I hadn’t actually been recording when we spoke.
