CHICAGO – New York filmmaker Ry Russo-Young gave an exclusive interview to Indie Outlook, the independent film blog and podcast created by writer Matt Fagerholm. The conversation, published this week, details Russo-Young’s fascinating work, from her experimental shorts to her star-studded feature, “Nobody Walks,” which she co-wrote with “Girls” creator Lena Dunham.

Fagerholm will chat about the latest independent films on Vocalo 89.5FM at 9:20am on Friday, January 25th. One of the titles he’ll be highlighting is “Tiger Tail in Blue,” an acclaimed drama from local filmmaker Frank V. Ross, which screens Saturday, January 26th and Wednesday, January 30th at the Gene Siskel Film Center. The film explores the fractured relationship of a young married couple (deftly played by Ross and Rebecca Spence) whose conflicting work schedules have caused them to grow distant. Mike Gibisser’s excellent cinematography blurs the line between past and present with remarkable subtlety. The picture was nominated for Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You at the 2012 Gotham Awards. Ross gave an in-depth interview about his directorial work in a podcast that is available on the Indie Outlook website.
