Reel Review

We were intrigued at the idea of a retelling of the Cervantes classic Don Quixote, and from acclaimed filmmaker Terry Gilliam. With a film within the film, the work could be a tale of the quixotic nature of storytelling and the medium of film. It could be a tale of madness and exile, of hope and illusion.

Reel Review

  Based on a true story, Fighting with My Family is a British comedy meets WWE. Paige is born into a wrestling family. When she and her brother get a chance to try out for WWE (and meet Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) they are thrilled. Of course, there is a catch ... only Paige earns a spot. We're interested in how the story is translated to screen as well as the real complicated women portrayed. Host Erroll Southers is joined by Prof Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro and Alex Ago.

As follow up to our discussion of the film, Wind River, we are joined by partners in the Native Women in Film & Television organization. Native Women in Film & Television is  a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunities for American Indian & Indigenous women, encouraging the creative narrative by native women, exploring and empowering portrayals of women in all forms of global media, expanding empowerment initiatives for native women and girls, in the arts, media, social justice, civic engagement, economic empowerment, research, training and international relations.

We discuss why some organizations supporting Native Women find their struggle portrayed in Taylor Sheridan’s film. Why it resonates with many native women and how it might support the #WhyWeWearRed, #TimesUp, and #MeToo online movements to recognize trauma affecting millions of women.

If you haven't seen the movie, beware, this podcast has spoilers.
