Episode 402: CALLING ALL EARTHLINGS and DINNER PARTY

October 3, 2018

What are the ethical standards of a filmmaker portraying subcultures to which they do not belong? How does it shift if they are a member? How does the relationship between the filmmaker, subject and intended audience play out? This week we discuss all of this and sprinkle in alien stuff too, for fun, with a review of Calling All Earthlings and an interview with Laura Wexler (which we recorded at the 2018 AFI DOCS), one of the writers behind the VR movie Dinner Party. You can find the episode in the usual spots: on our "episodes" page, on iTunesSoundCloud and Stitcher, and anywhere podcasts are generally available.
