Interview: Director Brian Morrison and musicians Daniel Strauch, Michael Marx-Gibbons for documentary “Bastards’ Road” (The Filmcraziest Show)

In this first of two interviews of my coverage of the new documentary Bastards’ Road, I was able to chat with Brian Morrison – the director, editor and cinematographer of the film – as well as founders of the music media company Aliceanna Collective, Daniel Strauch and Michael Marx-Gibbons, who provided three original songs for the film. The documentary tells the story of Jon Hancock, a Marine veteran who walked 5,800 miles around the United States, using the solitude of the road and company of his fellow Marine brothers and their families of their fallen to successfully manage his wounds from war. This is as he goes across the country visiting his Marine brothers, as well as visiting those Gold Star families.
