Joining us from New York City is writer/director/producer Glenn Martin. It’s Leonard’s story in two minutes.
FOX’s Lilian Woo has the story:
Caroline, or Change is the first feature-length film inspired by an out real life legendary singer, soul legend Billie Holiday.
Glenn and Joe Martin met 40 years ago in New York City during the making of their second short film, Battle Royale, which showcases beautiful arthouse films of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Joe knew that his inspiration for the film came from all the passionate, bold, romantic soul music written and sung by Billie Holiday. Inspired to make a film that would reveal all, Glenn enlisted the assistance of a talented roster of New York-based musicians who performed Billie Holiday classics for his film. Without their talent and creativity, Caroline, or Change wouldn’t be a remarkable accomplishment.
This film was a significant labor of love.
In one of our first interviews with Martin since his film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, he shares how he got the perfect interview for our story.
Caroline, or Change opens nationwide May 12th.
Love It or List It, was our weekly episode of In the Bender Bathtub.
