For his new film "Boyhood," director Richard Linklater filmed with the same cast over a 12-year period to tell the story of a boy growing up. It was a risky experiment, but critics are raving about the film, which Slate's Dana Stevens calls "a gradually unfolding miracle." We'll talk to Linklater about "Boyhood," his career and his unorthodox approach to cinematic storytelling.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Richard Linklater, director of films including "Boyhood," "Before Sunrise," "Bernie" and "Dazed and Confused"
