The independent filmmaking legend speaks alongside actress Mary Woronov in a conversation led by Ian Birnie

Roger Corman

Roger Corman is known for producing or directing over 300 films on shoestring budgets outside of Hollywood’s studio system. He is a legend of cult and independent filmmaking, having produced or directed such films as A Bucket of Blood (1959), Little Shop of Horrors (1960), Death Race 2000 (1974) and Suburbia (1984). Corman speaks with actress Mary Woronov in a conversation led by Ian Birnie addressing their enduring careers and their work’s impact on video art and filmmaking over the past four decades.

Woronov’s acting career spans over five decades with numerous roles in films by Roger Corman as well as an early involvement in the famed Theater of the Ridiculous. Birnie is the program director of the Louisiana International Film Festival, the former director of the Film Department at LACMA and sits as the U.S. representative to the Mumbai International Film Festival.

This event is organized by Veggie Cloud, an ongoing series of film screenings, talks and lectures organized by Kate Wolf and Courtney Stephens.
