Podcast: Wendy / Nights of Cabiria – Episode 369

This week’s episode is brought to you by the InSession Film Store. Get your IF t-shirt today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Benh Zeitlin’s highly anticipated sophomore effort in Wendy and we continue our Federico Fellini Movie Series with his 1957 film Nights of Cabiria! We also hear from a medical professional about coronavirus and JD gives us his thoughts on Gavin O’Connor’s The Way Back.

Special thanks to Brandi Duran (aka JD’s lovely wife) for taking the time to join us to discuss COVID-19 and its impact on social norms. She was very informative and we appreciate her candid responses, even if it means not going to the theater for a little while. Speaking of theaters though, it was very exciting as we got the chance to see Wendy before many of them close. It was our most anticipated film of 2020 and we had fun dissecting its Peter Pan-inspired story.

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!
