"Judy Stone has the wit, the independence and the journalistic guts to call the shots as she sees them. Her interviews are smashing in their revelations." -Studs Terkel
"Judy Stone has an eye for movies and a nose for politics. Her interviews are not just good journalism (and terrific reading), they belong to film history as well." -J. Hoberman, Village Voice
Film critic Judy Stone is a legend. As film critic for the San Francisco
Chronicle for more than 30 years, she helped discover and help us appreciate dozens
of filmmakers some of whom are profiled in her latest book, Not Quite a Memoir: Of
Films, Books, The World. In this special in-person interview, the tables will be
turned on a master interviewer, as she reveals the person behind the camera (or pen) in
her lucid analysis of such creative people as Abbas Kiarostami, Jean Genet, Jeremy Irons,
Czeslaw Milosz, Sinead Cusack, Amos Gitai, Gus Van Sant, Isabel Allende and many others.
