We are joined this week by the director of the 2018 horror, The Ranger, Jenn Wexler. You may remember previous guest Heather Buckley, who was a producer on the film, discussing Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Well, Jenn has chosen an equally challenging film, Abel Ferrara’s Ms .45. She and April discuss what it means to portray sexual violence on the screen, and the effect it has on the viewer. They also chat about making low budget indie films and the importance of creating your own film community.
You can watch The Ranger on Shudder now.
And if you haven’t seen Ms .45…it’s fantastic.
