We released Episode 402 of our podcast today. What are the ethical standards of a filmmaker portraying subcultures to which they do not belong? How does it shift if they are a member? How does the relationship between the filmmaker, subject and intended audience play out? This week we discuss all of this and sprinkle in alien stuff too, for fun, with a review of Calling All Earthlings and an interview with Laura Wexler, one of the writers behind the VR movie Dinner Party. You can find the episode in the usual spots: on our “episodes” page, on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher, and anywhere podcasts are generally available.
