Slamdance Film Festival 2020: Interview: The Penny Black

The Penny Black is an intriguing new documentary fresh out of the Slamdance circuit. A man has left a stamp collection from a mysterious, potentially dangerous neighbor. The collection stays with him for years as his neighbor fades out of existence at the apartment complex. In the meantime, director Joe Saunders has filmed the story of the multi-million dollar bag of stamps, tracing the new ownership of his friend, a son of a conman who seems to be constantly wrestling with an urge to sell the collection. Some of them going missing and a noir-ish documentary emerges in the process. We’re delighted to speak with Joe Saunders, the film’s director, along with producer Alexander Greer.
