#12 - Filmmaker Carlos Reygadas - Serving Factical Life
Cannes Film Festival award winner Carlos Reygadas may well have created a perfect new English word to describe his filmmaking: factical. He's perhaps Mexico's best-known filmmaker who has preferred to remain out of the mainstream, with five feature films to his name since 2002. He sat down with us for a deep discussion about what motivates him to create his art… but just don’t call him an “artist”.

#3 - John Smiddy
From abstracts to rendered "mermen", John Smiddy's paintings are infused with a contemplative quality, whether they're nightmarish or whimsical, or both at the same time.

Masako Miki is a multi-discipline visual artist living and working in Berkeley, California. Art Talks Again spoke to her smack dab in the middle of the De Young Museum gallery where she was artist-in-residence for the month of August 2016, illuminated by the comforting glow of her paper lantern sculptures. We learn about her upbringing in Japan and her move to North America without knowing a word of English, the evolution of her process through life upheavals, the Yokai tradition, and share an understanding about cats.
