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.
A few days late to this post but at the end of October we talked about the visually stunning and charmingly twisted The Love Witch which simply delighted us. AJ had already gushed about it a few months back in her mid-year round up of the #52FilmsByWomen challenge but it was a new find for myself and guest host Yasmin. We talked the films use of nudity and purposefully abrasive take on perceived femininity along with how director Anna Biller would have been a perfect choice to direct the recent Suspiria.
We also manage to someone fall off the deep end in terms of discussion my recent discovery of My Hero Academia and Yasmin and AJ’s push for me to take on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures next. All of which is left in for your listening pleasure. Take a look below for links to what we talked about.
Much love and happy listening. Give us a follow at Twitter. Make sure to watch along with us so you can join in the live chat.
AJ’s other podcast which is all things JoJo!
And of course I made sure to shine a light on the brilliant new boygenius Ep.
