Northernstars Interviews Mark Raso
(April 18, 2018 – Toronto, ON) Toronto-born Mark Raso went to the University of Toronto and graduated with a BA in English Literature and Cinema Studies. He went on to study directing and screenwriting at Columbia University where he received an MFA in film. While at Columbia, Raso wrote, directed, and produced a number of short films that culminated in winning the Gold Medal, the highest honour a student can receive, from the Student Academy Awards of the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. His first feature, Copenhagen generated critical acclaim and his second feature, Kodachrome, enjoyed huge interest at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. Shot entirely on film stock, Kodachrome costars Jason Sudeikis, Elizabeth Olsen, and Ed Harris in a touching road movie that doubles as an elegy for analog in the digital age. It will be released as a Netflix Original on Friday of this week. Last week Mark Raso sat down with Jim Slotek to talk about The Making of Kodachrome.
