Exclusive Interview With Sheldon Renan: Director Of The Killing Of America
Podcasts by Gino Sassani on November 12th, 2016
Violence in America has been a hot topic in the news these days. But it’s not as new of a topic as you might imagine. In the 1980’s Sheldon Renan directed The Killing Of America. He put together news footage, much of which never made it to air at the time. He interviewed serial killers and investigated the stories. The documentary was never released in The United States. Now Severin is finally releasing it on Blu-ray. Of course, I just had to talk to the director and get the scoop on this one. Bang it here to listen in on my chat with Sheldon Renan.
