Guest Snob, Justin C. Finch, joins us to discuss the riveting autobiographical adaptation, 12 Years A Slave directed by Steve McQueen. If you haven’t seen this film yet, this episode may convince you why you are failing in life until you do. Tune in!
The Snobs sit down to discuss ‘Race-bending’ and ‘Whitewashing’ of characters in film. Is it ever appropriate? Listen in and tell us what you think?
Note – In the podcast we mention Angelina’s portrayal of multi-racial journalist Mariane Pearl in the movie A Might Heart as an example of both race-bending and whitewashing. Here’s a picture of the two side by side.
