Studio 360 Episode 1109, Tarantino, Sehgal, V.V. Brown V.V. Brown (Lorenzo Agius)

Quentin Tarantino talks with Kurt about his Oscar contender "Inglourious Basterds," about a band of guerilla Jewish-American GIs out for revenge in World War II. At the Guggenheim Museum, the main art exhibit has no paintings or sculpture, but it does feature children asking one provocative question. Our reporter gets creative with the sound of radiators and tries to become a composer. And singer V.V. Brown brings her fresh UK sound stateside.
