In a special episode of the Film Stories podcast, Simon is joined by a legend of American independent cinema, John Sayles.

In a far-reaching conversation, they talk about John’s new novel – Jamie MacGillivray: The Renegade’s Journey – as well as the movie origins of the project. Plus they go back over Sayles’ career, the way he managed to get his films made, ownership and copyright, battles with a movie studio and a whole lot more.

Plus: a few thoughts on where cinema stands now, and a screening too of Avatar: The Way Of Water
