The Marc Steiner Show

May 4, 2010 – Segment 3

If it’s spring, it must be time for the Maryland Film Festival!  This week be sure to listen to interview with actors, directors, and producers from just a few of the films in this year’s amazing line up.  Our first highlighted film is Freedom Riders, a documentary about more than 400 Americans who nonviolently resisted Jim Crow laws in 1961.  Black and white protesters rode buses together into the deep South.  Some were imprisoned, and some were brutally beaten.
 
Marc sat down with writer, director, and producer Stanley Nelson to discuss the events of 1961 and the process of making this inspiring documentary.
Freedom Riders will screen at 5pm on Friday, May 7th at the Brown Center at MICA.  Click here for more information, and to buy tickets
