“The Work” is a Chicago-based, film-focused, interview series with the goal of stimulating substantive one-on-one conversations about Chicago film and the filmmaking process. Fellow Chicago filmmakers, and co-creators, Curtis Matzke and Bradley Powell will serve as host of the upcoming series of ten interviews that will comprise The Work’s inaugural season. The impetus for the interview series started during the COVID lockdown as an informal conversation between friends.
