“History isn’t here yet. It’s coming, but maybe this time we can take it on our own terms.”

Today’s episode centers around the latest from director Kelly Reichardt, a lovely film called First Cow. The film stars John Magaro and Orion Lee as a pair of friends in pioneer days who sell baked goods….using stolen ingredients. It’s a film about friendship, history, opportunity and capitalism, and it’s one of Arthouse Garage’s best of 2020.

Today’s guest is filmmaker Connor Allen Smith, who brings his wonderful perspective on the film and gives some behind-the-scenes filmmaking knowledge about his own work. Also in this episode: a brand new segment called the “snob-free glossary” which breaks down films, filmmakers and filmmaking terms we mention in the episode so you have the full context of what we’re talking about.
