15 | JUSTIN CONNOR – Filmmaker of THE GOLDEN AGE

Shownotes

Justin Connor is an actor, writer, director, painter, and musician who did all that for THE GOLDEN AGE, an award-winning feature film that’s on Amazon Prime. The soundtrack is on all streaming platforms and a double vinyl album is coming out. THE GOLDEN AGE  is a tour de force musical rockumentary (a spoof that appears real) shot over a decade in California and India, about Maya O’Malley, a subversive pop star, who, after controversial remarks, gets dropped from his music label and sets out on a spiritual pilgrimage. A DAY IN THE LIES, a memoir novel that delves deeper into the life of Maya O’Malley, will be released this spring.   Justin is prepping the release of his third album, MATERIAL LIFE.

“If Justin Ran the World,” Summary by Suzanne Taylor, podcast host

If he ran the world, for what we can do now Justin would have everyone be creative and be on a devotional path. If one creative avenue has closed, as there being no work for actor Justin now, take up a new one. Justin has taken up painting. Whatever the medium, people need to produce things that create cultural expansion in ways that are original and uplifting rather than perform safer exercises primarily for commercial gain.
