CHICAGO – HollywoodChicago.com writer Matt Fagerholm will chat about the latest independent films on Vocalo 89.5FM from 9:30am to 10am on Friday, October 26th. Topics will include Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski’s hugely ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell’s acclaimed 2004 novel, “Cloud Atlas,” which opens in theaters on Friday, October 26th.

This is the second installment of Vocalo’s Indie Outlook series featuring Fagerholm, who created the independent film blog, Indie Outlook, this past summer. The site recently provided coverage of the Chicago International Film Festival with three in-depth interviews. Chicago’s own Kris Swanberg (“Kissing on the Mouth”) discussed her subtly eerie drama, “Empire Builder,” while Leslie Zemeckis (wife of Robert) chatted about her documentary, “Bound by Flesh,” which chronicled the lives of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton.

Director Brad Lichtenstein also discussed his Wisconsin-set documentary, “As Goes Janesville,” which follows the titular town’s efforts to rebuild their economy after the closing of a GM plant. It was Lichtenstein’s lens that captured the now-infamous footage of Governor Scott Walker’s “divide and conquer” comment. Most recently, Fagerholm conducted a podcast interview with filmmaker Stephen Cone, whose excellent ensemble drama, “The Wise Kids,” will have a week-long run at the Gene Siskel Film Center starting October 26th.
