In an episode that aired on Thursday night on the NYC PBS Station Thirteen (WNET), John was interviewed by Rafael Pi Roman about A Moment in the Sun, Amigo, and his long, fascinating career.
Why would the US fight a war, win it, and then forget about it?
Why would a filmmaker want to make a movie about a war most people haven’t heard of?
How long does it take to research and write a 1000-page novel?
Rafael asks these and more engaging questions; perhaps the interview below will provide answers to some things you’ve wondered about when watching Amigo or reading A Moment in the Sun.
If you’re in the New York area, this NYC-Arts interview will re-air on Sunday 9/23 at 7pm on WNET, and at 7pm on Monday on WLIW-21. The interview with John starts around minute 9:00.
