Marcel Ophüls turns 90

Somebody over on the TCM boards puts up a monthly post of people who will be turning 90 in the next month. Anyhow, the post for November went up yesterday, and one of the names is documentarian Marcel Ophüls. As luck would have it, I was listening to Radio Prague yesterday, and their feature was an interview with Ophüls, who was visiting the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival.

It's an interesting interview, aside from the bit in which the reporter felt it was necessary to bring up Donald Trump for reasons that baffle me. Radio Prague's website, as I've mentioned whenever I post one of their movie-related stories, has a transcript (more or less) of their stories at the main link. Of course, being a radio station, there's also the streaming audio at the top of the page. There's also the direct link to the MP3 file just below the streaming player, if one wants to download the interview to listen later. That MP3 file is 4.9 MB and about 10 minutes.
