Following Films Podcast: Peter Callahan on OUT AND ABOUT

  Out and About is an unconventional tale about a middle-aged man trying to come to terms with his life over the course of an afternoon walk through his hometown. Distinctive in both style and substance and told virtually in real time, the story weaves together the protagonist’s inner monologue with conversations he has with the people he encounters along the way. Raw, brutally honest, poignant and funny, Out and About explores the contrast between our inner and outer selves, the conflict between old dreams and new realities, and one man’s search for meaning as he wrestles with aging, success and failure in America, and his ultimate place in the world. Today I’m joined by Peter Callahan to discuss his work as writer/director/ and the star of OUT AND ABOUT

Director: Alexandre O. Philippe Year: 2023 Filmmakers often use real-world locations as a way to ground their stories in a precieved reality or to take advantage of the unique features of a specific location. The Statue of Liberty quickly represents NYC, the Hollywood sign lets the audiance know we are in LA, and The Eifel Tower is one the easiest ways a filmmaker can use a single (text free) image to set a film in Paris. Monument Valley has been the go to symbol for the American West since the earlies days of motion pictures.  Our fascination with western expansion has been consistent but rarely has it led to honest depictions of this complicated piece of American history. We often focus on the pioneering spirit, rugged individualism, and manifest destiny. The idea that settlers were destined to expand westward and spread democracy and civilization was a powerful narrative that captured the imagination of many Americans. Not only is this incomplete telling of history dishonest, its da

Is the truth inherently elusive? These and other questions will be addressed in a first-person account of the Tom Monfils murder investigation in 1992-1995 and its contentious aftermath.
