True Stories

Posted in Kulturecast by - September 21, 2015

On this week’s Kulturecast we near the end of our Singin’ September marathon with another cult classic: True Stories. Directed by David Byrne and co-written with Stephen Tobolowsky and Beth Henley, the film tells the story of a small town in Texas getting ready for the state’s sesquicentennial celebration. It features an ensemble cast including Pops Staples, a young John Goodman, and Byrne as the narrator of the story. We also spoke with Stephen Tobolowsky about the film, what it was like to work with David Byrne, and the state of film today.
