Alex welcomes Justin Connor, writer, actor, producer, and director of THE GOLDEN AGE, a tour de force musical film shot over ten years.
In the film, after a string of incendiary remarks in the press, subversive pop star Maya O’Malley (Connor) gets dropped from his music label and sets out on a spiritual pilgrimage throughout India in an attempt to resolve his troubled past.
Film Threat compares THE GOLDEN AGE to a “modern-day THIS IS SPINAL TAP,” while adding “Connor is the movie’s secret weapon. He portrays Maya as a man of intense passion and beliefs.”
Connor wrote and performed the songs live throughout the film, and the soundtrack album is now available on all streaming platforms. The project appeals to not only fans of indie film and music aficionados, but resonates with those on a devotional path, children of alcoholics, trauma survivors, and animal rights advocates. Listen in for a stirring conversation that touches on everything from the rise of cancel culture to the obscure genius of Harry Nillsson!
