Leslie Thornton



Filmmaker Leslie Thornton, creator of the experimental cinema classic Peggy and Fred in Hell, instantly bonds with Will Corwin when they discover that Leslie's father, and Will's great-grandfather both worked on the Manhattan Project. Will's great-granddad was a master steam-fitter at the Oak Ridge Uranium refining plant, and Leslie´s pop was a much-higher-up as a nuclear scientist. Much of Leslie´s work addresses the issues of post-apocalypticism, in large part due to having to contend with them on a very near and dear level. And you will hear the description of her father, Slim Pickens style, riding the bomb. Yes, for real.
