Plazm editor Jon Raymond and Plazm contributing writer Emily Chenoweth appear live and on local NPR this Saturday night, on LiveWire. Ward Cunningham, inventor of the Wiki, will also be interviewed.
As the LiveWire people say:
JON RAYMOND – Writer of MEEK’S CUTOFF, a film starring Michelle Williams, Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano and directed by Kelly Reichardt. Opening in theaters around the country on April 8, the film is a beautifully shot Western set on the Oregon Trail in 1845 and follows settlers on their way to build new lives in the Pacific Northwest. “The allegorical whiffs are unmistakable in ‘Meek’s Cutoff,’ from the hubris of Manifest Destiny and fear of the Other to the enduring tension between individual freedom and collective responsibility…’Meek’s Cutoff’ is revisionist in the best sense of that word, giving audiences a new way to see the past and, quite possibly, the present.” Raymond also wrote Old Joy and Wendy and Lucy.
EMILY CHENOWETH – Writer and 2011 Oregon Book Award finalist for her novel “Hello Goodbye.” Emily’s work has appeared in Tin House, Bookforum and People, among other publications.
Music by Third Angle Ensemble, Eve Beglarian, Rocky Votolato, and Agesandages.
