Unfortunately I missed most of the show but I will download the podcast. I seem to have heard that
Costas Gavras is going to speak about his new film tonight but I did not get the whereabouts. Could you please post this on the show website?

I saw this wonderful film as a 14 year old the year it came out and it motivated my political activism which started at that time and continued throughout my life.

thank you for the inspiration

Whatever happened to the film about the Vatican culpability during the Holocost? I saw it at the Paris and really enjoyed it and then it disappeared.
