Finding Her Voice Episode Ten: Romance
In February we spoke about (shocker) films that fell into the sphere of romance. Often a unfrotuantely derided genre, we wanted to tackle three films that showcase the diversity that can be found in them when directed by diverse talent. We talked about Alice Wu's Saving Face (2004) - a personal favorite- , Gina Prince-Bythewood's Beyond the Lights (2014) and the Jenny Slate breakout Obvious Child (2014) directed by Gillian Robespierre. What linked the three was the ability all demonstrated in building relationships for all of these characters outside of their romantic ones.
For March we're doing something a little different and discussing films edited by women-specifically we're watching Faults and Mad Max: Fury Road but we'll also be talking about directors Joss Whedon, Jeff Nichols and Martin Scorsese who have all primarily relied on female talent in editing their films.
We will also take a look and Before I Fall-the big March release for a woman directed film.
Watch along with us and make sure to catch the coversation next month! Happy listening :)
