Episode 4 – Paulina Lagudi UIrich

This episode features an intimate conversation with Paulina Lagudi Ulrich, the writer and director of the Showtime feature film, Mail Order Monster. We discuss a variety of interesting topics, including the dangers of social media, working with her new husband Cooper, and her struggle to finally overcome a devastating eating disorder early in her career. We lighten things up at the end by talking about the joys (and expense!) of shooting her latest project on Super 16mm FILM!

Here are a few links to some of the books and movies we talk about in today’s episode, including some of Paulina’s earlier work. I highly recommend you check them out, very powerful stuff!
