Hello and welcome! It is time once again for another episode of The Documentary Blog podcast. This week we’re lucky enough to be joined by the only filmmaker who has won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival twice, director Ondi Timoner. She joins us to discuss her latest film, Cool It, which premiered at this years Toronto International Film Festival (you can read my thoughts on Cool It here). We also talk a bit about her previous work, specifically her last film We Live in Public. On top of that, we talk about what we’ve been watching and we introduce a brand new segment to the show titled ‘How Was Your Weekend?’. All in all a great time and a definite must listen! Be sure to check the show notes after the jump for all of the info you need about Ondi’s films and please subscribe to The Documentary Blog Podcast iTunes feed. Enjoy!
