Season 4, Episode 14 (July 24, 2020)
Today’s episode is a real treat for our Shame Listeners! Michael sits down with one of his oldest movie buddies, Jordan Davis, to discuss a film that means a lot to him — Barry Jenkins’ MOONLIGHT.
We everything from identity, how Barry Jenkins makes an LGBTQ ally while being a straight man, how to handle POC voices in a film if it’s not made by a POC, and much more. We also dig deep into themes, filmmaking as a visual medium, and the agony that drips from each scene.
