Bonus: Talking about No Regrets for Our Youth (1946) with Nancy Schwartzman!
On this not-at-all regrettable episode Oeuvre Busters, Liam and George welcome Nancy Schwartzman to discuss Akira Kurosawa’s No Regrets for Our Youth (1946), starring Setsuko Hara.
Topics discussed? Swingers; heroic university professors; bending the knee; fast-asleep cops; ignorant villagers. Also, proper farmer etiquette!
Topics not discussed? Nothing. This episode is incredibly ambitious, and we pretty much cover everything there is to cover in a tight 1:02:31. You’re welcome!
Nancy Schwartzman is a Peabody Award nominated documentary film director, producer, and media strategist who uses storytelling and technology to create safer communities for women and girls. Roll Red Roll is her feature film debut, and goes beyond the headlines of the notorious Steubenville, Ohio high school sexual assault case to uncover the social-media fueled “boys will be boys” culture that let it happen. Roll Red Roll premiered in 2018 at the Tribeca Film Festival and Hot Docs, and has screened at over 40 film festivals worldwide and garnered 7 best documentary awards. The film opened theatrically at the Film Forum in New York City and the Laemmle Monica Film Center in Los Angeles to uniformly positive reviews with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. It was a Critic’s Pick in The New York Times and reviewed in The New Yorker, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, the Chicago Tribune, the Guardian, and the Los Angeles Times amongst others. Nancy appeared on CNN’s Amanpour, BBC Women’s Hour and People TV. The film opened the 32nd season of the acclaimed PBS documentary series POV, broadcast on BBC Storyville in the U.K., and is now streaming in 190 countries on Netflix.
A globally recognized human rights activist, Nancy is a tech founder and created the Obama/Biden’s White House award-winning mobile app Circle of 6 designed to reduce sexual violence among America’s youth and college students. Over 350,000 people in 36 countries use Circle of 6 and it is currently being adapted for journalists working in Mexico in partnership with Article 19 and the Guardian Project. She has presented her work at the White House, the United Nations, TEDxSheffield, CNN, Forbes, Good Pitch, DOCNYC and at over 60 colleges and universities. She is a graduate of Columbia University.
