This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review the Julie Dash film Daughters of the Dust and we continue our Charlie Chaplin Movie Series with his 1928 film The Circus! Plus, a few thoughts on 7500 and The Watermelon Woman.
This is an unprecedented time as Black Lives Matters continues to progress and grow in support. One aspect of that revolves around The Criterion Channel muting the firewall for some of the great black films they have in their catalog, including Daughters of the Dust, which we are very thankful for. It’s a film we highly recommend and we had a great time talking about. We also loved talking about Chaplin once again. In fact, simply in terms of conversation, it may be our best Chaplin review yet.
On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!
