Virginia Gilbert

This episode was recorded in London.

Virginia Gilbert is an award winning author and filmmaker. 
She is currently premiering her new film 'A long way from home' which she wrote and directed at film festivals all over the world. This conversation was recorded immediately following her showing of this new film at the Dublin film festival.

I met Virginia many years ago when I worked with her husband, Keith Farnan at the Laughter Lounge in Dublin. Since then they have become close friends.

I had been friends with Virginia for several years before I found out that her father was acclaimed filmmaker Brian Gilbert who made what I consider the greatest film about Oscar Wilde ever made with Stephen Fry in the lead role.
Virginia was a young adult helping her father on the set in Dublin and this experience inspired her to go to Trinity University in Dublin the same as Oscar.

In this conversation we talk about the joys and sorrows of the film making process, her secret for inspiration when she is writing and how to embrace the spirit of Oscar Wilde.

This episode is the embodiment of girl power because Virginia Gilbert kicks so much ass in her world and inspires me how she takes her creations of books and turns them into films. She is one of my favorite people to mentally joust with and to talk with about everything under the sun. It is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Virginia Gilbert.
