Hal Hartley
hosted by Tony DuShane

THE GIRL FROM MONDAY is Hal Hartley's latest film.  His other films include HENRY FOOL, FLIRT, AMATEUR, THE BOOK OF LIFE and many others.  A collection of his short films is available on DVD through Microcinema.

I met Hal at the Roxie Cinema in San Francisco during a screening of THE GIRL FROM MONDAY and took him to Dalva, a bar in the Mission District in San Francisco.

For the show, I need to edit the interviews to come in under 30 minutes.  As I edited this program, I realized there's no way I would be able to cut so much of our conversation from such an inspirational filmmaker, so this program turned into two programs.
