Q&A with the director of "Cropsey"

I recently reviewed a documentary entitled Cropsey, about a child killer on staten Island.  The title refers to an urban legend commonly discussed at campfires in the summer in the Northeast.  Beginning with the disappearance of a 13-year-old girl with Down Syndrome, the film recalls the police investigation of the crime, and interviews retired cops and citizen searchers and neighborhood watchers, many of whom are still active in the community.  I emailed some questions to one of the directors, Joshua Zeman, who made the film with Barbara Brancaccio.  Here is the result.  The film earned a B+ from me, and Doug Holm like it as well.

 

Winnebago Man, now at Cinema 21

Winnebago Man (Doc 2009)
Director: Ben Steinbauer

This is about Jack Rebney, an unwitting star of underground VHS tapes and, inevitably, YouTube.  While it is the simple tale of a man (Steinbauer) who merely wants to meet the guy demonstrating Winnebago RVs in a 1988 industrial film, it turns into a cautionary tale of notoriety and the eternal Internet.

Indian Country will be off for the month of August while other shows will be reviewed by KBOO

"Indian Country" has aired every other Friday from 1:30-3:00 pm. It  will be off the air for the month of August until further notice.

KBOO is previewing other shows during this time slot. Hopefully there will be more of a need for Native American program.  Native Americans are very under- represented in this country and around the world, wherever we are. It has been our plight since the European invasion times of old.

Host Ed Goldberg speaks with Portland author Ann Littlewood about her second "zoo-dunnit", "Did Not Survive," published by Poisoned Pen Press. The mystery continues where "Night Kill" left off. Now-pregnant zoo keeper Iris Oakley finds her boss gravely injured in an elephant stall. She suspects something more sinister than a rogue elephant. Animal rights activists are picketing the zoo, animals are disappearing, and staff are acting strangely. Then it gets worse.
The passionate issues around captive elephant management are woven throughout this traditional mystery set in fictional Finley Memorial Zoo in Vancouver, Washington.

Joe Carducci presents a memorial to David Lightbourne

Joe Carducci guest hosts a tribute to David Lightbourne.

David Lightbourne, 1942-2010, was an American folk musician and sometime-writer who, together with other counterculture mystagogues, was part of a scene coalescing in Portland in the 1970s. Using elements of their country's traditional music, they concocted their own strange breakthrough brew. David died on April 29th.

David was also a KBOO DJ, and got Joe on the air in the late 70's. The tribute will include live performances.
