25 for 25: episode 1999

Andrea Dorfman talks first features and Rick Conrad holds up his union sign at the Herald as the uncertainties of the year 2000 loom.



Millennium panic looms over us this week so we try to distract ourselves with art, specifically Andrea Dorfman's debut feature Parsley Days. Dorfman biked by the day after wrapping shooting on her fourth feature, Spinster, aka the source of June's Chelsea Peretti sightings. She talks abortion comedies, shooting in the north end on no budget, and going to TIFF.

Also on deck is journalist and author Rick Conrad to tell us about the Chronicle Herald newsroom's unionization saga, which occurred when he was a Herald employee and when he was the president of the Halifax Typographical Union.
