Morgan Neville is on a roll

(Starts at 9:06)

The filmmaker won the feature documentary Oscar in 2014 for “20 Feet From Stardom.” If you’re a fan of Fred Rogers, you may also be familiar with Neville’s acclaimed film, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor." And now, with "They'll Love Me When I'm Dead" (available now on Netflix), Neville chronicles Orson Welles' failed effort to complete his final film. Neville spoke with John Horn prior to his film's debut at the Telluride Film Festival.

At long last, "Amazing Grace" gets a release

(Starts at 1:02)

In 1972, Aretha Franklin recorded a gospel album at a church in Los Angeles. The live performance was also filmed for a documentary, but technical issues and the singer's objection prevented the film's release. But now Franklin's estate has agreed to let "Amazing Grace" be seen. The film's producer, Alan Elliott, talks with John about the long saga.

Born to be Wild

(Starts at 21:45)

FX has another hit on its hands, and it's a spinoff of the network's last blockbuster, "Sons of Anarchy." "Mayans M.C." follows the lives of a Latino motorcycle gang on the U.S.-Mexico border as its members wrestle with issues of family, ambition and drugs. KPCC's Sue Carpenter joined a few of the "Mayans" cast members for a motorcycle ride to talk about the show.
