Throughout October, guest reviewers are highlighting films and series which address black history, in support of #BHM and #BlackLivesMatter
To celebrate Black History Month in the UK, ‘2 Minute’ podcasts are proud to invite a number of guest critics from non-white backgrounds to review culturally significant films, all with the common theme of shining a light on black history.
From documentaries to dramas, comedy series to Sundance success stories, the podcast will feature a number of reviews of significant films and series to keep conversations of race, equality and inclusion alive at a time of heightened political uncertainty.
“2020 has been a unique year, not least because of how George Floyd has ignited the Black Lives Matter movement, and forced the world into action” Heff Corp. founder Liam Heffernan said. “Black History Month in the UK comes just before the election, so we all need to do our bit to keep the conversation not just alive, but front and centre.”
“The whole team cares enormously about doing what we can to make a difference, which is why we believe it was critically important that every review is not only about black history, but delivered through a non-white gaze. Our guests represent some of the best film critics on both sides of the pond.”
Our Guest Reviewers
Josh is a writer and podcaster for Next Best Picture, and a member of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle. I love all kinds of films, from hard hitting dramas with good characters to cheesy horror thrillers. Also, my favourite franchise is the James Bond series.
Roz is an accredited Rotten Tomatoes critic who writes for Battle Royale With Cheese, FOPP and on a monthly basis she runs Subversive Sundays film club @sundayfilmday. As a self confessed scaredy cat she’s a horror free zone, more indie than blockbuster film.
Neil is a freelance print & radio film critic, disc jockey and podcaster for FilmSeekers.
Reviews will be posted throughout October, in addition to the usual reviews of all the latest films and series from Van Connor and Zehra Phelan.
