Rian Johnson, the writer-director Brick and Looper, talks with Terry Gilliam on the occasion of the U.S. theatrical release of Gilliam's new movie, The Zero Theorem. In the first part of a two-part conversation for the Talkhouse Film podcast, Johnson and Gilliam discuss topics ranging from modern movie-watching and the perils of social media to Stars Wars Episode VIII, which Johnson is to write and direct.

The latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast was recorded earlier this summer at the Sundance Resort, where the Sundance Screenwriters Lab took place. In conversation are lab mentor Scott Z. Burns, a regular collaborator with Stephen Soderbergh, and lab fellow Oorlagh George, who won an Oscar for producing her father Terry George's 2012 short The Shore, as they share stories from trenches, screenwriting wisdom — and a very memorable Bob Dylan story.

The latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast features a conversation between writer-directors Stacie Passon (Concussion) and Ira Sachs, whose film about two men who finally marry after 39 years, Love is Strange, is released this week. The two friends and fellow filmmakers discuss full frontal nudity, how to get great performances, and the necessity of being a "hustler" in indie film.

Recorded at a live event at DCTV, the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast features Tracy Droz Tragos, one of the directors of Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Rich Hill (now on general release), in conversation with After Tiller's Martha Shane. The two talk about the more personal aspects of non-fiction filmmaking, such as the art of co-directing (with your cousin!), building trust with subjects and how relationships shift after production has ended.

In the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast, Robert Altman's frequent collaborator (and also one of the most interesting leading men in Hollywood history) Elliott Gould talks with Robert Downey, the legendary director of such cult comedies as Putney Swope and Greaser's Palace. To mark the premiere of the new documentary Altman, the two raconteurs not only discuss Altman and his movies, but also aging, marriage, baseball and the state of the world, and tell stories involving Warren Beatty, Francis Ford Coppola and Groucho Marx.

In the latest Talkhouse Film podcast, I Origins writer-director Mike Cahill and True Detective director Cary Fukunaga are in conversation. Cahill makes emotionally acute sci-fi movies that ask big cosmic questions, while Fukunaga's work is darker and grounded in an often bleak reality; although their filmmaking styles couldn't be more different, the two have been good friends for years. Their wonderfully wide-ranging conversation here takes in everything from science to storytelling, with some gripping real-life stories of ghosts and the unexplained in there too.

In the first ever Talkhouse Film podcast, we bring together in conversation two pivotal figures from the recent American independent film scene: erstwhile "mumblecore" ringleader Joe Swanberg (Happy Christmas, Drinking Buddies) and Hal Hartley (Amateur, Simple Men), one of the smartest, wittiest directors to emerge in the '90s. Over the course of their conversation, they discuss everything from film vs. digital and the changing landscape of the indie scene to the growing prominence of television and the role that technology plays in their lives, for better or worse. It's the kind of conversation that only two filmmakers could have. For more filmmakers talking film and TV, visit Talkhouse Film at thetalkhouse.com/film.
