Professor Johannes DeYoung‘s film “The Big (Deep) Sleep” will be screened at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, KY on November 17. The 2022 Louisville Film Society Short Film Slam also features discussion with participating filmmakers. Following the his screening, DeYoung discuss influences of pulp fiction and cinematic noir.
