Flick Nation, Episode 18: The Road to Freedom

CLICK TO LISTEN: An extensive look at the making and unique marketing of Brendan Moriarty’s independent drama The Road to Freedom. The film examines the final days of photojournalists Sean Flynn (Errol’s son) and Dana Stone, who famously disappeared in Cambodia in 1970. Actors Joshua Fredric Smith and Scott Maguire discuss the pleasures and perils of retracing the duo’s final march, and the intense experience of making a movie in a rural, foreign land. Producer Blu de Golyer talks about marketing the film; and Creative Freedom owner Mark Rickard discusses the complexities of releasing an independent film into a shifting marketplace. If you are a fan of The Road to Freedom – or movies in general – this is a fascinating peek behind the curtain, and filled with great stories and personal insights.  Don’t miss it!
