This week’s podcast features a compact Q&A with legendary Goblin member Maurizio Guarini, who joined the iconic Italian prog-rock band and film composing group in 1975, and co-composed & performed on many of Goblin’s greatest albums, including Roller, Suspiria, and Patrick.
Guarini, now based in Richmond Hill outside of Toronto, was recently commissioned by the Italian Institute of Culture to compose and perform a new score for L’inferno (1911), Italy's first feature film, and a surreal adaptation of Dante’s The Divine Comedy, the famous narrative poem completed in 1320.
Visit KQEK.com for more info, links, and a film review of L'Inferno.
Special Thanks to Maurizio Guarini and his wife Cinzia, and David at Daniloff Productions for facilitating the interview.
Visit Maurizio Guarini's website for more info on the composer and his vast C.V.

Julia Marchese discusses directing Out of Print (2014), a passionate documentary on the New Beverly Cinema, the feisty, independent rep cinema renowned for programming rare slices of film history; and the increasing difficulty for programmers to access and screen 35mm film prints in an age of digital projections and DCPs.
Visit KQEK.com for a film review of Out of Print, which was recently released on DVD from Level 33 Entertainment, and thematically related reviews of Cinemania (2002), The Dying of the Light (2016), Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the American Drive-In Movie (2013), and Side by Side (2012).
