The Arts Section 05/08/16

May 8th, 2016
Buster Keaton and Samuel Beckett

On this Mother's Day edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek spotlights a new documentary, NOTFILM, that offers a comprehensive exploration of what happened when two icons, Samuel Beckett and Buster Keaton, came together to work on a film.  Gary also caught up with Chilean saxophonist Melissa Aldana, who was the first female instrumentalist to win the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition a few years ago. An interview with an artist who uses data patterns to create art. Gary talks to a writer, whose latest book is all about the death of the video store.  We'll take a closer look at what film critics had to say about one of the worst reviewed movies of the year (hint - the movie is about a holiday).  Plus, the Dueling Critics stop by to talk about the recently announced Tony nominations and review a new play.
