This week as her special guest from the arts Ruth Copland is pleased to be interviewing Mark Pellington, whose highly creative career spans three decades and represents a multi-media exploration in all narrative forms. Internationally recognised for his work with music videos, he’s worked with some of the biggest bands on the planet, as well as directing popular TV shows and highly-regarded feature films, such as 'Arlington Road' and 'The Mothman Prophecies'. His latest feature 'The Last Word' starring Shirley MacLaine and Amanda Seyfried, had its world premiere at Cinequest Film Festival in Silicon Valley. Mark also creates art films and has collaborated with William Burroughs and Jenny Holzer on text/image pieces.

We talk about Mark Pellington's ground-breaking work at MTV and in the world of music videos; his art film 'Honesty'; how he approaches his work; the tension between commerciality and art; the potential of art to process trauma and heal; and his thoughts on the comedy drama 'The Last Word' now showing in cinemas everywhere.
