F45:007 – Norah Shapiro, Miss Tibet

UPDATE: Norah just won the Best MN Doc award at MSPIFF! Congrats!

This episode we sit down and chat with producer-director Norah Shapiro about her new documentary, Miss Tibet: Beauty in Exile, which just had its local premiere at MSPIFF 2015 (after the world premiere at DOCNYC!). Does starting off as a public defender make for a good filmmaker? And what does local moonshine have to do with any of this?
