From The Pen Of John Sayles: A founding father of US independent film, Sayles scrutinized the One Percent in movies like Matewan and Brother From Another Planet long before they were called that.

Sayles discusses his life journey from factory worker to filmmaker and how it informed his political consciousness in his films; the creative process without spin; and how costumes ended up more important than truth and history in movies today.
