Hello Movie Friends,
Thank you for subscribing to This Movie Changed Me
updates. In case you missed it, the
third (and final) season of the podcast is well underway. We’re
grateful for your support and engagement across the years.
Before we sign off, we want to gather with you — our listeners —
for a live episode, hosted on Zoom. We’ve invited filmmaker Amma
Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom) and Poetry
Unbound host Pádraig Ó Tuama to discuss Yentl, the 1983
movie starring Barbra Streisand as a Jewish girl who disguises herself
as a boy to pursue a religious education. The movie was influential to
both Amma and Pádraig — in different ways — for how it handled gender,
sexuality and religion.
We’re gathering on Sunday, February 28 at 12 p.m.
ET (9 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. CT / 5 p.m. GMT). Find
more information about the free event and sign up here (we’re
capping the event at 100 participants, so register early!). If you are
unable to attend, you will be able to access a recording of this event
