As many will have realised, we are currently undergoing something of a hiatus in our output. Gorillas in the Mist will air on the given date, 6th December and we hope to resume regular episodes shortly thereafter. We apologise for the lack of communication but be assured that we are both well, firmly committed to the podcast and while the delays have been caused by factors outside our control, they are not health related. Thank you and we hope we are able to reward your patience soon.
6th December 2020. Gorillas in the Mist. This episode will look at the story of Dian Fossey and her study of West African gorillas. The lead role is played by Sigourney Weaver although many would say that the gorillas are the stars of the show. To examine this 1988 classic, we are joined by Sean and Cody from Green Screen who will also bring an environmental perspective to the movie.
Date to be confirmed: Just Mercy. Recently referenced in Thoughts & Themes 2, this powerful film stars Michael B Jordan as Bryan Stevenson, a civil rights lawyer seeking to overturn the conviction and death sentence that an Alabama court had awarded to Walter McMillan (Jamie Foxx). It’s a movie that is gripping and packs a powerful punch but how much license has been taken with the facts?
Date to be confirmed: The Two Popes. Anthony Hopkins and Jonathon Pryce star as Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Bergoglio respectively in this 2017 movie looking at relatively recent turmoil in the highest ranks of the Catholic Church.
