The Lure

We are so lucky to have on the program this week, cinematographer and director Skye Borgman. Her most recent documentary, Abducted in Plain Sight, follows the story of a young girl in a tight-knit LDS community, who is abducted twice by her neighbor and parent's best friend. It's an intense and serious film, which makes Skye's chosen genre movie all the more interesting. She has decided to discuss 2015's Polish, horror, mermaid musical, The Lure. She and April pinpoint how this film is able to deftly deliver harsh truths about female sexualization within the framework of a mythic fairytale. The two also marvel at the director Agnieszka Smoczynska, and what she was able to do in terms of pushing the limits of the mermaid's fin designs. Skye also touches upon working with the Broberg family on her doc, and how she was able to get them to discuss incredibly difficult subjects like pedophilia and child abuse.

You can see Abducted in Plain Sight on Netflix.

Minority Korner

This week we are doing the work that 24 hour "news" networks (entertainment channels) aren't doing and we're going to report some ACTUAL stories that you all should be paying attention to. But first, Nnekay has survived her surgery and she has all of the gory, delicious details, and photos, which you can't see because this is a podcast, but James has seen them. JettSetter Jones AKA James flew to LA for work for a day, and may have eaten people, does LA really turn you into a monster? Also Nnekay has a mind blowing theory about The Little Mermaid, and we may have insight as to where Hamilton star Lin Manuel Miranda might be taking the new version he's helming, or at least we have some notes on where the story should go. Nnekay is shinning light on the North Dakota Access Pipeline, which is potentially going to wreak havoc on Native American reservations. NSFW (Naked Sword Film Works) could be changing gay porn forever, and for the better, it's everything we've ever wished gay porn would be, and what we always knew it could be. Also how close is James to the gay porn industry? Quizlet Korner is all about the Louisiana Flooding nobody seems to be paying attention to, and we're giving a giant fuck you to a certain reporter attempting to out athletes at the Olympics.
