Legendary filmmaker John Sayles has directed 17 films over the past three decades including “Eight Men Out,” “Passion Fish” and “Lone Star.” But before he was a filmmaker, Sayles was an award-winning fiction writer, having already published two novels and a collection of short stories before turning 30. WNET’s NYC-ARTS reporter Rafael Pi Roman joins the director-novelist at his Hoboken office to talk about his most recent film, his latest novel and his unique career.
