Hello and welcome to TYF’s newest podcast series, Finding Her Voice. Joined by editor in chief Gabrielle Bondi and film and television writer AJ Caulfield, we’ve come together to highlight, celebrate and discuss films directed by women. From the very best and most significant in the cinematic canon to personal, under-seen favorites, our hope is to touch upon as many films and talents as we can that may be undervalued and/or hopefully provide listeners to more options to add to their “watch list” for the 52 Films by Women Challenge.
A monthly podcast, the three of us will pick one or two films that we (ideally) haven’t seen before, watch the films and then come together to discuss at length our general feelings of the films, how the female perspective possibly added to the overall atmosphere and our thoughts on the current (not so great) status and representation of women in film. To listen to old episodes, go here and make sure to check us out on SoundCloud and find us and rate/review us on iTunes! We also can be found on Twitter @FindingHerVoice.
Welcome back! Apologies for our long absence but, as is the case with life, things got a bit chaotic for the three of us. However, we are more than happy that we got to return to speak exclusively about the works of Jane Campion, a filmmaker we’ve admired for quite some time now.
For October we will once again be watching horror films directed by women! Our picks are Near Dark and American Mary.
Watch along with us and join in on the conversation!
