Interview: Conversation With “The American Side” Star Greg Stuhr & Director Jenna Ricker


I had the ultimate pleasure to meet and spend the afternoon engaging in conversation with “The American Side” writer/actor Greg Stuhr and writer/director Jenna Ricker. We had a lengthy conversation at the Steppenwolf Theater cafe in Chicago. In anticipation of the Chicago opening of the film at the Wilmette Theater that will run June 17-23 (17 & 19 with special Q&A with Greg Stuhr and Jenna Ricker).

Jenna, Greg and I discussed a variety of topics regarding the film, independent movies, the process of putting together a film, and a lot more. Greg and Jenna was gracious enough to spend a quality amount of time with me, so the interview runs over 1 hr 30 minutes. Make sure you listen to it’s entirety below. I can assure you it’s worth the listen. One of the best discussions about film I’ve ever had. Check it out below:
