This week on the InSession Film Podcast, our very own Josh Williams joins us to discuss Logan, starring the great Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart. Going off of that for the rest of the show, we dedicate our Top 3 to our favorite moments of catharsis in film and we interview the gentleman that run Self Narrate, an organization dedicated to the power of storytelling and the catharsis that comes from that exercise.

Big thanks to Josh for joining us this week. He was a great guest, and while we’ve loved his writing on the site, it was a pleasure to finally have him on the show as well. Additionally, thanks to Brandon and Jaron of Self Narrate for sitting down with us to talk about stortyelling and why we are moved when going to the movie theater. This week’s show is a little long with the inclusion of the interview, but we hope you enjoy our discussion on film and catharsis. We certainly had fun recording it.

Anyway, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting of the InSession Film Podcast!

– Self Narrate Interview (48:03)

Brandon and Jaron are two individuals that run an organization in Gainesville, Florida called Self Narrate, an organization dedicated to encouraging people to tell their stories. In our interview with them this week, we talk about the power of storytelling and the catharsis that comes from that exercise, both as the participant and as the listener. We also talk about how that idea translates to film and why visual storytelling is such a visceral experience.

Top 3 Moments of Catharsis (1:27:03)
This week’s Top 3 was a little bit…well, you know. Coming off the heel’s of Logan and our interview with Self Narrate, it just made sense to talk about our favorite moments of catharsis as it relates to film. There are a lot of films and moments that have impacted us over the years, so this one was personal to us. On that note, what would be your top 3?
