Philip Kaufman, the San Francisco-based director of critically acclaimed films such as "The Right Stuff," "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" and "Henry and June" joins us in the studio. We look back at Kaufman's career and discuss his newest release, an epic film for HBO about the marriage of writer Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn.

"Hemingway & Gellhorn" was shot largely in San Francisco and Oakland, and stars Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen. Kaufman joins us as part of our First Person series on the leaders, innovators and other compelling characters who make the Bay Area unique.
