From Our Soundbooth | March 16, 2018

This week on The Missouri Review‘s Soundbooth Podcast we interview documentary filmmaker Stephen Maing about his newest film project, Crime + Punishment, which recently screened at the 2018 True/False film festival in Columbia, Missouri.  Crime + Punishment is a powerful film that spotlights the systemic problems that plague the New York Police Department – the largest in the nation – and the small, courageous group of officers who sue the city in an attempt to fix it.  Stephen Maing has directed award-winning films such as High Tech, Low life, which won Best Documentary & Cinematography Awards at various festivals, and The Surrender, which received the 2016 World Press Photo Award for Best Documentary and was also nominated for a 2016 Emmy for Outstanding Short Documentary.  Stephen has directed films for Time Magazine, The Nation, The Intercept, and The New York Times.
