On this week’s podcast, we’re sharing two highlights from last month’s series, The Female Gaze, which showcased work from some of the best female cinematographers working today.

First, director-cinematographer Reed Morano discusses  I Think We’re Alone Now, which stars Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning as the last people on earth. The film won the Special Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and opens in September. Morano joined us for a Q&A after our sneak preview screening.

After that, you’ll hear our Q&A with cinematographer Ashley Connor, who joined us after a sneak preview screening of The Miseducation of Cameron Post. The second film from director Desiree Akhavan, it is a timely coming-of-age story starring Chloë Grace Moretz as a teenager sent to a gay conversion camp.
