On her hit Slate podcast Represent, Aisha Harris has a recurring segment, Pre-Woke Watching, where guests talk about films they grew up with and loved, but can no longer view through an uncritical eye. (Like coming to terms with how totally sexist Pretty Woman is, or discovering the prevalence of colorism in Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America.) The panelists will have a hearty discussion around evolving tastes, opening up the floor to audience members to give their own PWW examples.
World Premiere of Hari Kondabolu's TruTV documentary, The Problem With Apu. Following the screening, I'll be moderating a discussion with Hari, director/producer Michael Melamedoff, Whoopi Goldberg, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Aparna Nancherla.
