Peter Von Kant film at MAFH -- Victory Fund President CEO Annise Parker -- Author/Influencer Jenny Block

We speak with Marcus Hu, a producer of the film Peter Von Kant now playing at the Museum of Fine Arts. Peter Von Kant—a retelling of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s classic melodrama The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant—stars Denis Ménochet in the lead role and Isabelle Adjani as his actress muse, Sidonie. Peter Von Kant is a famous director (based on Fassbinder) who lives with and mistreats his assistant, Karl (Stefan Crepon). Through Sidonie, Von Kant meets and falls in love with Amir (Khalil Gharbia), a handsome young man of modest means, and offers to help Amir break into cinema. Hanna Schygulla, one of Fassbinder’s real-life muses, also appears in the film.

Finally we speak with author/influencer Jenny Block about her writing including her latest book, "Being That Unicorn".  Being That Unicorn means being the magnetic person that everyone in the room is drawn to. It means being honest and true to yourself every day, no matter what. When you are really, really good at being yourself, you’ll make other people feel really, really good about themselves, too. In Be That Unicorn, Jenny Block, author of several best sellers for women, shows you how to stop putting yourself down and start finding your magic.
