The general release date from all other sellers, including Amazon, is June 8th.  
It’s very exciting that the book is finally out and I hope all that have received it are enjoying it.  Please consider leaving a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or any other retailer, if you are. 
Thanks so very much!

A Look Inside SOLEDAD No.6


Soledad No.6 is now available at Amazon. Featuring a brand new interview I conducted with legendary Dutch filmmaker Nouchka van Brakel, this latest issue is just a few bucks and is over 100 pages. Along with the lengthy van Brakel interview, No.6 features an interview with Samm Deighan discussing her new book, The Legacy of World War II in European Arthouse Cinema, and contributions from Marcelline Block, Ruth LaSure, Tara Hanks, and Emily Clare Bryant.    

Getting the opportunity to interview van Brakel was one of the highlights of my professional career so far, and I am incredibly proud of this issue because of it. She discusses her entire career with a special focus on her films A Woman Like Eve, The Debut and The Cool Lakes of Death. These three films are featured in the remarkable new Cult Epics box set. Van Brakel also discusses the film she made with Sylvia Kristel as well as the rest of her incredible career.

Here are a few exclusive low-res sample pages from the issue.
