For November’s online MK3D, Mark welcomes three talented guests to the show.
First, Mark catches up with Julien Temple to focus on his latest music documentary Crock Of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan. They enthusiastically discuss the ex-Pogue’s songwriting skills and music career. Julien further reveals how he overcame the challenges of addressing Shane’s private life and how limitations pushed him to make creative choices.
In the wake of the release of Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins, legend Kathleen Turner joins Mark next to discuss the irrepressible American journalist. Having depicted her on stage, Kathleen gives Mark a taste of Molly’s wit and activism. Speaking from LA, she also gives an insight into topical issues including COVID-19 regulations on set and the 2020 American elections.
Finally, filmmaker and youth worker Henry Blake talks to Mark about his debut feature County Lines. Describing his social issue drama as a “cinematic visual document”, Henry explains his approach to making a film about the delicate yet important matter of drug networks exploiting children.
Ending on a note of Sound and Vision, the show wraps up with a tribute to Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), featuring the one and only Kathleen Turner.
