Rob Edelman: Money Talks

Mar 10, 2014

A constant refrain that I’ve been hearing from movie lovers for years is: How come Hollywood does not produce more high-quality films-- films that are script and character-driven, and that are not overloaded with generally mindless content? This is a fair question. And it is one with a simple answer. That answer is a one-word answer. That one word is: money.

A recent Oscar winner has roots in the Berkshires. Pittsfield, Mass. native Caitrin Rogers co-produced 20 Feet From Stardom which received the Oscar for best documentary. WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis spoke with Rogers about her experiences and the film which chronicles the lives of backup singers for some of music’s headliners.
