Ep 30: Film Criticism


Today’s episode is about film criticism with two disabled film critics, Kristen Lopez and Angelo Muredda. Kristen and Angelo discuss how they became film critics, the challenges of being a disabled film critic, and why film criticism is so slow to change when it comes to inclusion of disabled people in the profession. They also discuss problematic disabled narratives and accessibility at film festivals and movie theaters.
