The Iconography of Peace – An Interview with
Can Art Stop A Bullet Filmmaker Mark Street
and Artist/Film Collaborator William Kelly
Hosted by SDFF Co-Director Jean McGlothlin
A spirited conversation between Can Art Stop A Bullet filmmaker Mark Street, documentary collaborator and artist William Kelly, and SDFF co-director and lead programmer Jean McGlothlin. The conversation emphasizes the film’s very serious message—that although warring appetites have marked the globe and continue to persist, art can nurture non-combative relationships—it has the potential to be both message and messenger. The warmth of the friendship between Street and Kelly imbues this conversation with a gregariousness and joy that amplifies the message coming from the film about the generative and productive nature of art, not just in their material form, but as practice.
SDFF will continue to release its filmmaker Q&As leading up to the festival, which will stream June 10-13. The Q&As will be available to the public free of charge through June.
