The Call-In

AFFRM continues to expand on its services/offerings, launching its very first podcast series, which will feature conversations between AFFRM founder (and a filmmaker in her own right) Ava DuVernay, and black filmmakers from the diaspora.

Titled The Call-In, listen to DuVernay interview black filmmakers in what AFFRM describes as "casual, candid conversations focused on the craft," focusing especially on, not only the "why" questions of the filmmaking process, but also the "how." 

Expect conversations that will cover almost every key stage of the production process, from writing to editing, going beyond questions of race and identity into the technical and creative process behind each filmmaker's work. 

The series begins with director Andrew Dosunmu, on the occasion that his latest feature, Mother Of George, opened theatrically last week, and expands to other major markets this weekend.

The pair discuss Dosunmu's feature film debut, Restless City (which was released by AFFRM), Mother Of George, and the recent announcement that he'll be helming Focus Features' Fela Kuti biopic.

The 45-minute conversation follows below.

The Call-In with Andrew Dosunmu is now live on AFFRM's new Soundcloud page, as well as on www.affrm.com.
