The Barber Shop Show: Chicago's future filmmakers and this month's headlines

Are you one of Chicago's future filmmakers?

Richard Marion might be. You might remember Richard from our post on the West Side Writing Project, but he also appeared on the most recent episode of The Barber Shop Show, our weekly radio show on Vocalo. Richard, an 18-year-old from West Humboldt Park, says he wants to shape the future of film by studying at New York's Film Academy and going on to Hollywood.

We also talked to  Margaret Caples of the Community Film Workshop of Chicago and Tim Horsbugh of Kartemquin Films  about their collaborative project, Diverse Voices in Docs, a professional development and mentorship program for emerging documentary filmmakers of color.

On this week's show, we'll feature the news headlines that we liked, disliked and those that made us say WTF in our regular mid-month mashup episode with local journalists. Got any news stories you'd like us to talk about? Leave us a comment or hit us up on Twitter orFaebook.

Don't forget to tune in to The Barber Shop Show, broadcast every week from Carter's Barber Shop in North Lawndale on Vocalo 89.5 FM or on Fridays from 12 to 1 p.m.. If you miss the show, you can always catch a rebroadcast on Saturdays from 12 to 1 p.m. or download our podcast, available on iTunes the Tuesday after the show airs.
