Judy Wood on Vivre Sa Vie



In a slight deviation from protocol, Los Angeles immigration lawyer Judy Wood — whose precedent-setting work is the subject of the new drama Saint Judy — discusses Jean-Luc Godard’s monumental 1962 drama Vivre Sa Vie in the context of her own experience assisting refugees and asylum seekers. Your genial host Norm Wilner is, as always, happy to get political.

Your genial host Norm Wilner has some thoughts about the raccoons.


Georgina Reilly on The Sound of Music

Complex and Murdoch Mysteries, and now you can hear Georgina Reilly — whose latest movie Goalie drops on iTunes Canada this Friday, June 7th — stand up for The Sound of Music, Robert Wise’s Oscar-winning musical about a family that sang its way out of Nazi-occupied Austria. Your genial host Norm Wilner is willing to see where this is going.
