Three French Canadian directors behind the latest indie hit TURBO KID–Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell, and François Simard–join us for a last-second podcast conversation about their retro post-apocalyptic baby. I’m rushing this one through, because I am hoping this will get people in San Diego to the Digital Gym Cinema to see it either tonight (9/5 at 9pm) or it’s last night on Wednesday (9/9 at 7pm).
