A conversation with independent filmmakers Laura Waters Hinson and David Marshall
In today's conversation, Warren Cole Smith talks with independent filmmakers Laura Waters Hinson and, later in the program, David Marshall, who he met during the film portion of the South by Southwest Festival recently held in Austin. Laura Waters Hinson didn’t start to be a filmmaker, but through a series of unlikely events, some of which we’ll hear about, she not only found herself a filmmaker, but in Rwanda, making what became her first film “As We Forgive,” a movie that told an amazing story of reconciliation that ultimately won her a student Academy Award. When she’s not making or promoting her films, Laura lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband Tommy, who is the pastor of a church just a few miles north of Capitol Hill. The conversation took place in a movie theatre in Washington. The conversation begins by Warren Cole Smith asking her to tell about her unlikely path to filmmaking.
