August 31st, 2020

Inspired by the New York Times article "How the Criterion Collection Crops Out African-American Directors", Emily and Ed discuss the ways in which the Criterion Collection shapes the canon of great films while omitting the work of African-American filmmakers. They also talk about the death of Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last week at the age of 43.
