Season 2 Epsiode 8: The Silence of the Lambs (26:46 minutes)

Air Date 07/21/12

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ted Tally gives a provocative look at the adaptation and production of the Oscar-winning film THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. Tally covers it all: working with director Jonathan Demme, anticipating Jodie Foster’s Oscar win, the delicious changed ending for the world’s most famous cannibal, Hannibal Lecter, and more. Recently listed on the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry as a “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” film, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is guaranteed to be lauded for decades to come. Followed by Thomas Ward’s haunting short film, IN THE MIDDLE,  about a small town waitress in the middle of nowhere waiting for her shift to end.
